Wasn't it that way that you look for a mentor (or many using this list ;)
that helps you creating your package. And then you need a sponsor to
upload your file (of course it's nice if it's the mentor that helped you
creating your package).

And finally your mentor/sponsor decides to be your advocate and starts
your New-Maintainer-process?

PS: You learn a lot about the process, while waiting for mentors,
sponsors and advocates... :-]
