First, since SML/NJ isn't GPLed, figure out whether the SML license is
OSI-approved. If it is, then it falls under the GPL exception of the
Cygwin license, and you can link it with Cygwin and distribute it, in
which case read <http://cygwin.com/setup.html> for instructions on
preparing and ITP'ing a Cygwin package.

AFAIK, there aren't any forms to sign for contributing packages.
Good luck. FYI, I'd vote for an smlnj package...
