How to sensibly announce a finalised packaging if I do not intend to upload myself (Was: packjpg packaging: C++ help needed)

Thanks for the hint.  This works and I think I have completed the
packaging.  However, I think I will not upload since the result of
the compression is no usable JPG format any more.  Thus I've added
an according paragraph to the description:

 The compression is done into a packJPG native format PJG which can
 not be used by any image viewer.  To use the image again you need to
 re-do the compression step using packJPG.  Thus the compression is
 only helpful for archiving the images.

So if somebody is interested in taking over packjpg[1] that's fine but
since I have no use personally I will not do the final upload.  Do we
have any proper method to announce a ready packaging for somebody
to pick up.  The closest I know would be an RFP bug - but I'm not
really requesting the packaging, thought.

Kind regards
