So far, we've pretty much taken all comers. Compatible licensing with
cairo is a requirement for hosting though. Compliance with cairo
binding guide is strongly encouraged, but not enforced in any sense.

For the rest, just do the best you can.

First, let's see the code somewhere. Got a link to it we can look at?

Second, go through this process to get an account that will let you
maintain the code:


(It says "CVS" on that page, but the account will let you host the
code with your tool of choice. Most of the bindings are still
languishing in cvs, but I imagine some maintainers will see the git
light soon and move them over...)
