Maybe if you could share individual diffs from your git branch which add
Makefile targets to:
- bundle org-export and org-e-*.el ELPA packages
- update package-upload-file
- bundle an org+contrib ELPA package (if you have this implemented)

then this functionality could be more easily folded into the master
