I also like to have as many packages on GElpa as possible, but it's
important to note the cost of this is not zero. Given that other
developers can (and occasionally will) edit the package in one place
without knowing to update the other, it can quickly get messy.
This would be much cleaner, if someone did that Gelpa-Bootstraping
thing Stefan's been asking for.

To be a proper package, it needs to have proper package headers and
footers. In the case of css-mode, it's only missing a `Version'
Once it's a proper package, it's only a matter of dropping it inside
the GElpa repo. The biggest issue, as I said, is keeping it updated.
