The basic notion is that the package has to be finished and clean enough, compared to what a developer would be willing to add. So from wip, not from wip, the real question is if it meets the quality standards. (pkgsrc-wip is explicitly a place where work towards a package that is not yet finished is welcome, both to learn, and for half-baked things) Beyond that, wip has a notion that each package should have a TODO file listing all the things that need to be done before it is ready. So the TODO file should be empty before promotion, but more importantly the package should be such that the TODO file *ought* to be empty. Certainly it has to be ok wtih pkglint and to build/package with PKG_DEVELOPER=yes. And generally to be free of "this is icky and ought to be fixed".
