Someone did answer back then, somewhere (maybe not on this list). I remember trying to submit to ELPA and agreeing to assign copyright to the FSF, but being asked to sign a document that also assigned copyright of every other Emacs package I'd written to the FSF too. I went back and forth with the FSF lawyer for a few emails, where he kept making small changes to the document that didn't really solve the problem, until I gave up.

I'll look into submitting to Marmalade, thanks!

Sorry, I think we all forgot to answer the question some years back...

I think it's the same way as with Emacs -- somebody just has to check it
in to the ELPA repository instead.

The copyright has to be assigned to the FSF for ELPA contributions,
too.  Would you be OK with doing that?  For Marmalade, I don't think you
have to...

What's the procedure to submit to there?

One of the shortcomings Emacs seemed to have to me was its lack of
original action games; it has implementations of classics like Pong
and Snake, but no games of its own. So I wrote one (see the
attachment). It has a pretty stiff learning curve, but hey, so does
Emacs.
There hasn't been many (or any?) new games included in the Emacs
distribution the last few years, but perhaps this would be appropriate
for inclusion in the Emacs Lisp Package Archive or Marmalade instead?
It would be great in GNU ELPA, yes,
