I can't speak for anyone else, but I don't understand the question.

What do you mean, "approve" a distribution? There is no approval
process & nobody to approve anything.

What "database"? There is no central database, list or registry of
distributions, either.

You make a distro, you announce it, that's it. You are done. There is
no official process, no oversight, no control. And that's just the way
we like it! ¬:)
