https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7648/it-would-be-ok-to-incorporate-veusz-into-sage/?answer=11586#post-id-11586You have three choices in how you can include [Veusz][1] in Sage: as a standard package, as an optional spkg, or as a contributed (formerly known as experimental) spkg. A contributed spkg doesn't need to be run through the rigorous testing and quality assurance that optional and standard spkg's go through. You assume all responsibility with respect to a contributed spkg: for testing that spkg, how well it integrates with Sage, etc. The Sage project takes no active role in maintaining a contributed spkg. It is up to you to maintain it.
An optional spkg needs to pass a number of hurdles before it can be accepted. But the greatest hurdles of all rest with standard spkg's. The Sage project [hosts][2] these three types of packages.

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7648/it-would-be-ok-to-incorporate-veusz-into-sage/?comment=22795#post-id-22795Try making Veusz a contributed spkg first for your personal use. It is conceivable that over time, a large group of Sage users find Veusz useful for their own work. Then with a little more work, it's possible to migrate Veusz to the status of an optional spkg.Sat, 28 Aug 2010 18:20:23 -0500https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7648/it-would-be-ok-to-incorporate-veusz-into-sage/?comment=22795#post-id-22795
