Alright, thanks for the hint.
Uploaded a tarball + lsm file to
with the implicite request (by lsm primay-site entry) to put this tarball to

As this is my first time uploading to upload.kde.org since many years, 
anything else I need to do which is not described in the files on the ftp 

Once the tarball is published there I should also make a more formal 
announcemen on kde-announce and o my blog, too, I guess.
