Please subscribe to debian-mentors. There ask for a mentor for your
Packages. Normaly a few people respond that have similar
interests. You choose one of them to be your mentor and he helps you
with the packages and will upload them for you.
Getting a mentor first is a good thing, because its easy and
fast. You have direct connection to someone experienced if you have
any question and you have someone watching over you a bit, pointing
out little mistakes you might make or improvements.
Becoming a maintainer is a more lengthy process and debian-mentor
and your mentor will help you with any questions about that as well.
May the Source be with you.
