You can also post in on Emacs Wiki, in the Elisp Area:

And then send a message to address@hidden with a simple recipe
for inclusion in MELPA.  MELPA can pick up libraries automatically
(e.g. daily) from GitHub or the wiki.  For the wiki, you just need
to provide a recipe.

A "recipe" can be as simple as this, where the part after `;' is
a short description.

 (character-fold+ :fetcher wiki) ; Extensions to `character-fold.el'.

If the library includes multiple files then the recipe is a bit
more involved.  You can contact address@hidden for more info.
