Well, its hard to define a "home seat" with distributed VCSs...
Indeed, I pushed for chess.el to become a part of ELPA around 2014.
That was when I last went on a crusade to eliminate as many small bugs
as I could find.

I informed John about this move, actually several times.

However, we never actively removed any other repos, so apparently
johnwiegley/emacs-chess from github accumulated some stuff over time
which IMO always should have been merged to ELPA.

I guess its my fault that I didn't manually track these patches.
However, I sort of assumed John would know that he is splitting history
when accepting PRs on github.
