Neww addon ready, so what next?

Not sure if this is the right palce but here it goes.

Have written my first addon and now its ready to be released upon the world
So whats next?
Upload it?
Write a nice description of what it does?
A few screen shots?

In short, is there a "guide" to "release" a new addon?

Well you basicly listed everything.

You might wanna think about a simple FAQ + a Changelog later.

Historia is ready!

So my first addon is ready.
Was a fun (and sometimes challlenging and frustrating) learning process.
It is zipped and uploaded, approved and and I wrote a little description.
Oh, and it has pictures

I was (and possibly am) a complete newby to lua and xml.
So ignore the way it is programmed. It will improve as my skills improve.

I someone is willing to use Historia and give me hints/tips for improvement it will greatly be appriciated.
Of course compliments and/or a little pat on the head will also be wlecome
