The best would be you get an SBo admin put the source on slackbuilds.org
for you; but don't bet on that.

I personally created a project on sourceforge.net to host the source for
one of my SlackBuilds (wbar). You could do the same, or use similar
services such as googlecode, or even dropbox. Actually, any reliable
service providing direct download links would suffice.

If you don't want to host yourself, create a tarball with proper name,
send it to me and I will put it for you here:
