I agree.  I have the same problem when I build documents (via CI) on a
remote Debian server where I don't want to mess around with anything more
than what comes with Emacs by default.

I understand that in Emacs 25 Org, Company, Gnus, CEDET and maybe a couple
of other packages will move to GNU ELPA and thus separate release channels
(these packages will still be bundled with Emacs).  This means we can push
out new versions easily, making more frequent releases more attractive.
Again, if you want to help out with preparing releases just let the list
and Bastien now.
