Well, this was not about "required to become a maintainer", but "what
qualifies a package that it should enter the debian archive". At the
moment, there is just one written criteria, and that is "DFSG-free".

However, I'm not too sure if we need as many mail servers as we
currently have, or as many x-windows managers. Well, as long as all
are in good shape, there's no need for discussion, but if someone is
doing QA work, some other items have IMHO precedence over fixing the
n+1. mail server.
