Dear Tarn,
it would be nice if your program is available at CTAN though.  If you
think that it's not matured, the CTAN upload interface allows you to
add a comment.

If you upload something to CTAN, people who are subscribed to the
ctan-ann mailing list


will be informed about new uploads and updates.  Thus, if you upload
your program to CTAN it gets more attraction and you probably get more
feedback from users.
