Considering I haven't done it before (kind of), I'm not the best person
The page to upload is <http://www.ctan.org/upload/>. You simply submit
it, then someone looks at it and uploads it, pretty much.
I'm not sure if the dtx/ins format is required; it certainly can't
handle installing .fd files, etc, so I don't see what the point of it
is with a package like yours --- especially with such simple
documentation, a plain text read me would (I assume) be good
enough...although fancy documentation is always nice.

I would use the new fd files. It's not like psnfss is going to be
updated anytime soon.
You could ask on comp.text.tex; I've seen Walter Schmidt around there a
fair bit recently, and he seems to know more about fonts in LaTeX than
