What sort of docs are you looking for? Info?

Of course, even when installed from Melpa it is self-documenting in the
sense that the source files are full of documentation. The lentic-org.el
file contains a description of how to convert an existing file from
being an normal el file to an "orgel" file (which is the name I have
given to an el file that converts cleanly to an org file with lentic).

I could translate these to info (via org-mode and texinfo). But melpa
presents a challenge here, since it works on the source only, and I need
to generate the texinfo from the source, at least as far as I know. So,
unless, I can get MELPA to run arbitrary lisp during build, I do not
know how this would work. Or I could denormalise my git repo and
put the generated files in there; not ideal.

> Or, why not install it en Elpa?

It depends on dash.el which is not on ELPA. It's not that dependent on
dash, though, so I could write dash.el out if I really needed to, but I
am hoping that dash gets into ELPA before I reach 1.0.

This was fairly similar to my driving use case, to be honest, where I am
combining a Clojure based ontology development environment with
documentation. I mentioned it to Sam Aaron last time I saw him, as I
think he uses org-mode performance notes. I can't remember whether I had
org-mode integration at that point, and it was slower then. I should
ping him again.
