I don't know what needs to be explained... you don't need any special
status to contribue a mascot, just find the idea, create the picture, send
it to us and wait feedback. Maybe try several variants.

For an idea of a mascot, maybe you could try some sort of bear. When I
created the logo of my company , I tried to select an animal that could
remind me the strength of Debian and I selected the bear:
- walks usually slowly but when it runs, you'd better not be in his
way ("the quiet force" -- we say "la force tranquille" in French, not
sure if I made a good translation)
- the white bear could live near the Linux penguin in some cold area
