First, thank you Stefan for stepping up to do the work!

I have been quite swamped with $LIFE and haven't been able to dedicate
sufficient time to use-package upstreaming as much as I would have
liked. That makes your interest all the more welcome!

I might be bit out of loop on today's emails, let me know if I miss

Pick whichever way you're most comfortable with, as long as the end
result is acceptable by maintainers, shouldn't be a problem.

As mentioned above, I have been barely able to give any time to work on
this. Please go ahead with anything you would like to work on.

I would personally like to see the package in core if at all possible,
and John has also expressed interest in that. Personally I'd prefer if
development continues in core after upstreaming, but it is upto John to
decide. I know that Modus-themes and Org both are developed out of tree,
and only merged in when the package version is bumped. Which means
history is lost, but clearly that hasn't been a problem and maintainers
of those packages prefer it.
