You can create an empty repository via SSH:

I agree that it is a good idea to add instructions on how to submit packages, though.
That works, but I think it would be nice to also have a button in the web interface. Something similar to how you create a repository on github. You click the button, it asks you for a package name and category, and then it explains how to upload.
That said, I currently upload packages with burp and probably wouldn't use such an interface. It just seems like a nice thing to have, and would make it easier for new users. (Of course, making it a little difficult could be used as a way to filter out incompetent maintainers, which is not a bad idea.)
