Could you please attach the tarball? It does not have to be production-ready, and can be an alpha release. Please review the checklist at <https://savannah.nongnu.org/register/> and then prepare and add the attachment.

What about an additional Wget repository instead?

We need something to evaluate, and GNU evaluation team is overloaded.
