They need a qualifier: both senses of "joint distribution" are different.
* In the first situation eLyXer is uploaded into the LyX repos at
fixed intervals, probably after eLyXer releases; integrated and
released together.
* In the second eLyXer and LyX have different schedules, but they are
packaged and distributed together by integrators. At least on Windows;
on Debian it is enough to build two packages and make one suggest or
recommend the other, which is what happens here.

Maybe the first should be "joint development", (although in my optimal
solution development of eLyXer would happen elsewhere), or rather
"code integration"; and the second "joint packaging". Both of these
situations are common in Free software development. I used to prefer
the first, but now I think the second is best for eLyXer.
