It's accepted practice for people to do sponsored uploads, and the
requirements for the sponsor are fairly clear: check over the package
in detail, build it yourself, and upload it with the Maintainer: field
in the .deb set to the sponsee.

There's no corresponding accepted practice for "sponsored posts" to d-d-a
ttbomk, and I certainly can't find any examples of it in the last twelve
months. There's also no reason for it: you don't have to "maintain" a post
to a mailing list, so the rationale that you don't have time to support the
post later doesn't hold up.
