If its open source, solves a security issue and active: welcome to OWASP!

>> Hello Leaders,
>> I would like to ask a simple question. Is there any procedure about publishing OWASP projects for the first time?
>> During the Google Summer of Code, we kinda crafted the first version on OWASP Seraphimdroid (https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_SeraphimDroid_Project), which is android project focused on user privacy mainly, but also has some security and educational aspects. I would like to publish current version on Google play. May I just do it or should someone approve it?
