I was part of the localteam for DebConf NYC, and I've been using Debian since '99. Me being a DM might make that list of remaining ITPs that I've posted look less daunting ;-)Any time is a good time! Go for it!!So I guess I should first become a DM, I just need DDs to advocate for me. My GPG key is signed by many DDs, I have in the past posted my intro to debian-newmaint (I can repost), I read all the required reading.
If Debian Maintainer is what you want to be then go for that.If what you want is to be a Debian Developer - i.e. also the political aspects of our community, then I see no need to first apply for DM.
On a related note, should I be adding "DM-Upload-Allowed: yes" to the packages that I've put into git.debian.org?
That is separate from above: It depends on who you are working with in packaging for Debian - if those are DDs then there is no need, but if they are DMs only, then yes, tag it and have a DD upload at first.
