Actually I'm not sure MELPA requires a repository to be on GitHub.
Reading the recipe format I understand one can specify a git
repository on any server, and even not only git.

Anyway, I think the GNU ELPA package works reasonably well and we
don't need for the time being a more bleeding-edge version.  Probably,
we should make it more clear we prefer that way of installing AUCTeX,
I still see sometimes people having trouble installing the source
package or the Windows one.
