I think you'll want to read over the FAQ a little first:


You don't get an advocate first up, and if you want someone else to
maintain the package (adoption) then you want either an RFP (Request For
Packaging) or a RFA (Request For Adoption) depending on whether the package
exists in Debian currently.  I think you probably want a sponsor, in the
first instance.
