I am concerned there may have been a misunderstanding here.

We specifically did not want to insist that every package's developer
agree to follow NonGNU ELPA rules.  Our plan was to have two ways of
handling a package in NonGNU ELPA:

1. The developers would undertake to follow the NonGNU ELPA rules,
and we would import their changes automatically.

2. The developers would not undertake anything, and we would look
at new versions to see whether to import them.

Did you just say to all of them that they all had to do (1)?
