What do you mean by "publish"?

Making it publicly available or integrating it into EA so that it is available for usage?

Integrating it into EA is simply following the guide here:
http://sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/13.0/automation/deployingaddins.html

If you want to make it publicly available I suggest you pack both files into an installer which handles unpacking, registry entries and assembly registering for you to prevent from doing it manually.
The installation package can then be made available via standard hosting means (Dropbox, sourceforge, GitHub or whatever you prefer).

Hope that helps.

Oliver
