I was saying that, just as we do not insist that all our C dependencies be a) installed in Emacs's git repository and b) distributed as part of Emacs source releases, there is no reason in principle why we cannot have external Elisp dependencies, for example Org and CEDET.

We distribute both Org and CEDET with Emacs, and require copyright assignment for that code.

Irrespective of which repositories the development happens in.

Copyright assignment is a different matter: that's a consequence of their being GNU packages. We require copyright assignment for GNU make, which is required to build Emacs, but we do not put its sources in Emacs's git repository, or distribute it in source releases.

It's really the question of where development happens that I'm interested in. Just as we don't need to maintain our own version of GNU make, or any of the other C dependencies, it's no longer essential, now that we have a good way of packaging Elisp, to maintain Org, CEDET etc. in the Emacs repository.
