My opinion is that things should be transparent. But not to bother
developers it is best to keep it in the mailing list which is
transparent enough and durable over decades.

My opinion is that non-GNU ELPA and GNU ELPA both should never point
to any website that has any proprietary Javascript or promotes
proprietary software, specifically hyperlinks to Github better be
removed completely.

The other issue with licenses should be used to help those people who
left unlicensed packages to license them properly.
