Sure, I am not blocking anything, I just wasn't sure if this was a
mistake or not.  If this is the plan, feel free to proceed.  My only
real concern is that I had mistakenly said the documentation on
elpa.gnu.org would be able to replace the contents of the doc/
directory, which isn't the case right now.

While we are at it, is there a rationale for this order?  I mean, there
is no hurry, right? My misunderstanding was that the order was 2 -> 3 ->
1.  Or are you planning to have use-package ready for Emacs 29?
