No special steps needed do it like you are doing it already after you
have created repo on git.d.o under /git/pkg-fonts run

     mr co

This gets new repository to local. In case you worked on the repo
locally just place it under pkg-fonts.git which was cloned as per my
previous mail and once you push to git.d.o run

    git commit .gitignore .mrconfig
    git push

mr is just a helper tool called (multiple repository manager) which
allows you to do mass checkout of all packages or mass update and mass
push of packages. All make-mrconfig does is lists all repositories under
/git/pkg-fonts/ folder on git.d.o in .mrconfig and .gitignore.

Hope this helps if not please let me know
