Well, so I assume you never sponsor anyone since it appears to me that
one needs a sponsor before applying as a NM (if the NM task targetted at
is maintaining packages of course).

Quoting <http://nm.debian.org/newnm.php>:

Looks like a chicken-and-egg problem if one doesn't get sponsored as
long as one is not in the NM queue.
