I'm trying to use github.com/milkypostman/melpa for creating a package from my own org-mode git repository. There are many recipes which I can create by make recipes/foo command, but there isn't the recipe for org-mode.

I look org-mode.rcp, el-get's recipe - it uses special commands for building. Also I know that elpa org-mode package and el-get org-mode package have slightly different file structure: el-get org-mode package has etc and lisp directories, but elpa org-mode package has few additional files.

  • Out of curiosity, any particular reason why you need to build org-mode through Melpa's machinery?

  • I want to have my own mini repository with patched packages. I use el-get now, but it is difficult to use elpa and el-get together because of resolving dependencies. Emacs 24.4 has variable package-pinned-archives for specific archives.

https://github.com/quelpa/quelpa uses recipes in MELPA's format to build your desired packages from source and installs them using the built-in Emacs package manager
