Yes, it is clear how to contact: "please write to <webmast...@gnu.org>"

However, it is not very clear what happens next. How the distro is
reviewed, what steps are involved. 

The page states: "When you do, we'll explain more about our evaluation
process to you, and get started on it quickly."

Well, they didn't when I contacted them some years ago.
And why explain it only privately, why not public for
anyone to see? That is what I call non-transparent.
