a few questions on GNU ELPA

        Reading elpa/README left me with a few unanswered questions.

        First of all, – when the package is of the multi-file variety,
        would the “release machinery” be somehow offended should
        I import the pre-release history /without/ the respective
        PKG/PKG.el file, – used (AIUI) for its Version: metadata field?
        (I’ll then push that file in a separate “release” commit.)

        Now, that same file is going to have a dozen lines of code
        (excluding comments) at most (that is: mainly the ‘defgroup’ and
        ‘provide’ forms.)  Should I use the GPL3+ notice for that file
        (as the rest of the code uses), or would the simple
        all-permissive license [1] be also acceptable?

        Also regarding the release machinery, do I understand it
        correctly that there’s currently no way to maintain several
        (say, “development” and “stable”) branches in GNU ELPA?
