You have three choices in how you can include Veusz 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 these three types of packages.

ok, it uses qt4py which is an experimental package, so what kind of package it should be?

Try 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.
