If your authors are supposed to submit papers in TeX, it is better to
put your package on CTAN under a free license. Then it will be
included in the major TeX distributions, and your authors will be
spared the trouble of installing the package

Nowadays CTAN maintainers encourage putting github links in their
packages metadata, so you are actually supposed to do both. I do this
with acmart, for example.
Full disclosure: my son is a GitHub employee.
