It's not really different to hosting any other distfiles; pretty much 
anywhere you can make them available is fine. If you have a GitHub repo 
where you keep the work that has gone into this, that's an easy place to 
keep the files - just create a tag and make a release using that tag, 
and you can attach whatever files you like to it.
