I don't think this has happened before, so nobody really knows. :)

My guess:
In Emacs trunk, just remove crisp.el with a ChangeLog note something
like "move to GNU ELPA". Change etc/NEWS: add a new section after
"Obsolete packages" for "Packages moved to GNU ELPA" and move crisp.el
from obsolete to there.

As to getting it into GNU ELPA; yes install the version that was in
Emacs trunk (remove the "Obsolete-Since" header and add any needed
package headers). Do that before making any code changes.

But it would be good to preserve the VCS history of the file, if possible.
Maybe someone here has an idea how to do that?
Maybe start from the git version of the Emacs repo?

Same as Emacs.
