Pick a bug open against one of our packages, debug/triage it and come
up with a fix. Commit the fix to the VCS repository for it. Make other
needed unrelated (minor) changes listed on the PTS page. Request that
a Debian member upload the result to the archive.

You should be in the changelog. The person who signs the package is
the Debian member who uploads it to the archive.

Just commit to the VCS and then request a sponsor:
