it is already on salsa at https://salsa.debian.org/danilov-guest/rtags
if you add my account danilov-guest to the emacs-team, I can clone the repo and
continue it there.

Combined into one package it will pull through the dependencies simultaneously
company vs auto-complete and helm vs ivy.
And then if someone does not want to have for example ivy, will have to disable
it manually (due to autoloads etc.) With a separate elpa-ivy-rtags package you
just don't install it and nothing will pull elpa-ivy.
Therefore I prefer to have then separated.
