Just ask if you wish a sponsor to upload a finished package for you.
If you wish to share maintainence then asking for a co-maintainer
is the right thing to do. Although if your co-maintainer isn't a
Debian developer then making uploads might not get any easier.
An advocate is somebody who, after working with you, will agree
to nominate your inclusion into the project as a developer in your
own right. If you don't wish to be a maintainer, and are happy to
make sponsored upoloads you don't need one.
