Nowadays, moving a package to contrib/ only makes sense if it is meant
to ultimately be included in core. Otherwise, GNU ELPA is just as fine.

As Rasmus pointed out, documentation is mandatory for inclusion in core.

Also, you need write access on Org repository so as to be able to
maintain "ox-epub.el" from there.

I have not looked at the code, but the idea sounds nice.

However, IIRC, Bastien (Cc'ed) was reluctant to add more export
back-ends, back when I wanted to move ox-koma-letter to core. He might
want to have his word on the subject.

Thank you for sharing your work.
