Thanks for volunteering! But with an history of a single DLA (and on your
own package), I don't think that you're ready for this task, yet.

You probably have the required skills but it takes a bit of time to build
trust and to see that you're committed to doing regular LTS work, because being
on this alias is really about this: making sure we prepare security
updates when we get advance notifications.

We can certainly reconsider this in a few months if you continue
contributing like you did recently. Thanks for your work, BTW!
