That's the way to go. That's what I suggested as well. And it's very
similar to the discussion we're currently having on debian-qa (even if
the motivations are different):
Which alioth project do you intend to use ? I think it can be
"debian-edu" since the project already has a subversion repository...

Sure, having worked regularly on several packages already integrated
within Debian counts during the process of becoming a DD.

That's not how the "sponsorship" currently works. The DD always rebuilds
the source package after having checked the packaging.
