For ada-mode, I just started the Gnu ELPA package, and told the ada-mode
mailing list about it. The internal ada-mode is no longer maintained
(except as required due to changes elsewhere in Emacs).

There is a vague plan that it should be possible to include a Gnu ELPA
package as part of the distribution, so that there would not need to be
a copy of the package in Emacs git.

However, no one has volunteered to implement that.

I plan to declare the internal ada-mode obsolete and eventually delete
it, after I get some speed issues with the ELPA ada-mode improved.
