I have a stack that's fairly well-behaved with the standard ros tools and such (rosmake cleanly, etc) and listed on so it's known by the ROS indexer. How do I get it from this stage to where someone else can do an 'apt-get install PACKAGE-NAME' at the command-line?

Seems that you already have it listed on as you posted the link.

For a release see here: given that this is still valid.

Does listing it on impact how it'll be released?

Listing it on is independent but should usually come first.
