And, preferably, package it because you find it to be useful.

The how doesn't matter too much; I've done things in a somewhat different
order - get my key signed and have one of the signers be my advocate; wait
for an application manager, and ask him to sponsor a (trivial) package.

I have other packages (see the URL in my .sig), at least some of which should
become official Debian packages, or at least distributed-with-Debian
packages. None have sponsors as yet...
