Before that, you absolutely need to:
- learn how to package
- gain experience maintaining a considerable amount of packages
(several if they are small, few if they are complex)
- collaborate with other maintainers, for example reporting bugs, send
patches, ask to comaintain a package
the advocate is someone that knows your debian skill very well, and
publicly declares "you are ready to start the way of becoming a DD".
then, please use your real name (if that's possible) and link to the
list of packages you maintain (but I fear you maintain none).
googling for "firstname.lastname@example.org site:lists.debian.org" returns 12
results, definitely too few.
So, start to be "known" by debian, do something for the project, and
*after* a given amount of time, you'll start to understand what being
