Can you be a bit more specific what you mean when you say register? That page is on the wiki; if you would like to add an entry it is simply making the edit.

Oh, I supposed the list is made by ROS.org(but it's not). I still want to know the detailed procedure until upload sample code of our new depth sensor. We already have sample code in C language.

I don't think you understand what is going on in that sensor list. There is no "registration." That list is simply a wiki page that people edit.

The steps are:

1) Make an open source ROS package. Document it. Test it. 2) Add it to the sensor list.

Thanks again. We're working 1) Make an open source ROS package. Document it. Test it. But we want to know detailed procedure 2) Add it to the sensor list. Is there any format of 2) ?

It really depends on what sort of sensor, generally the documentation should be federated so the bulk of your documentation is off the read-me of your source repository. What sort of sensor is it? Can you share the source?
