If you mean merging use-package into emacs.git, that will definitely not
be happening (at least if I'm the only one working on it).

As for the order rationale, getting use-package to ELPA means less
friction and more users can try it out, more feedback, more eyeballs,

Ultimate aim here is to make use-package to emacs.git, so users have
use-package available without any effort. ELPA is just a step in that

1 -> 2 -> 3 is also how Eglot went about and it worked quite well for it.

>From my understanding, ELPA has less stringent requirements for
documentation and testing compared to core. Since I cannot commit enough
time to complete all the tasks before expected 29 branch-off, ELPA is a
good compromise IMO.
