From pkgsrc/doc/pkgsrc.txt, #14.1. Submitting your packages:

     First, check that your package is complete, compiles and runs well; see
     Chapter 13, Debugging and the rest of this document. Next, generate an
     uuencoded gzipped tar(1) archive, preferably with all files in a single
     directory. Finally, send-pr with category "pkg", a synopsis which includes
     the package name and version number, a short description of your package
     (contents of the COMMENT variable or DESCR file are OK) and attach the
     archive to your PR.

     If you want to submit several packages, please send a separate PR for each
     one, it's easier for us to track things that way.

     Alternatively, you can also import new packages into pkgsrc-wip ("pkgsrc
     work-in-progress"); see the homepage at
     for details.
