Yes! For one given project, we need to:
 1. have the software packaged,
 2. contact the project website to notify them and have them tell about it:
     - citing the distribution (Mageia) and using the logo,
     - giving the process to install the softwarer (ideally, just
urpmi <software> or package manager => install => <software>) ?
 3. a documented process in the wiki or elsewhere
 4. people to do it

Or should something else/different be done?
