As far as I am aware, there is no requirement that you ever consider going
through NM and becoming a DD in order to maintain a package in Debian.  It
*is* a more precarious existence, and some sponsors (such as myself) may
choose not to sponsor packages from people not intending to become DDs, but
if there is a requirement to eventually become a DD, I am not aware of it,
and goes against my understanding of how things should work.

If you don't mind me asking, who was it who told you that you needed to
become a DD?
