The most important thing to do is to include a LICENSE file as part of
your source code. Also you need to have some text in the beginning of
all of your source files. Read all about there here:
After you do this, make your source code availible via svn, cvs, or
just via tar balls.
Then you can make an ebuild, etc. if you want it to work with portage, etc.
