Just ask. Since there's already a maintainer they are either already a Debian Developer with an account or they already have a sponsor for their uploads most likely. An advocate is needed if you're intending to pursue becoming a Debian Developer. It's worth noting that getting a Debian Developer account is not a requirement of maintaining packages. It does make doing so considerably easier (since you no longer need a sponsor for your uploads) but it is not a requirement.
