It depends if you want to package/maintain it or just want to request that somebody
else to packages it.
If you want to package+maintain, then you need to report an ITP  bug against 'wnpp',
otherwise you need to report a RFP .
You might found useful this page , and these  if you want to create the debian
package by yourself.

You just need a sponsor to upload the package to the archives.
> Can i become a debian maintainer?
No, you don't need to become a "Debian Maintainer" to maintain packages.
BTW, please reply your messages to firstname.lastname@example.org (instead email@example.com),
since that's the correct mailing list regarding this subject.
 ITP = Intent To Package
 RFP = Request For Package
