If you are going to contribute it then all you need to do is upload it
to the ftp site found in writing R extensions and very nice person
will oversee the building of windows and mac binaries.  that is as far
as my knowledge goes.
good luck

Let's not spend our time and resources thinking about things that are
so little or so large that all they really do for us is puff us up and
make us feel like gods.  We are mammals, and have not exhausted the
