Sorry for the thread necromancy. What do I need to do for inclusion in GNU ELPA?

I would go a step further than Stefan and say that MELPA is basically the archetype of not-fine in this domain: finding a package in MELPA means, basically "someone, somewhere, wrote some code that might do something, in some of the versions I've had at some point". Finding a package in GNU ELPA (or a handful of other elpa repositories) adds things like "this version should actually do what's written on the tin" to potentially-interesting properties like "copyrights already assigned" and "can be fixed by interested emacs maintainers".

I hope that helps,
