I don't directly know your work, and I'm not advocating for you. However, I think you should consider this: If you have been an active Debian contributor for 12 years, even if it is via sponsored uploads, I believe you will find no opposition if you go straight for the DD status. Up to you to decide. Becoming a DM is simple and quick, and requires much less hassle than becoming a DD (for very important trust reasons). But I believe throughout this time you have surely material to show to the project you "really mean it" :-] Greetings,
