I think the NM team would appreciate it if you could put together a
team of volunteers who are willing to sponsor NMs.  You could send
e-mail to all those NMs who have not been assigned an AM yet (a
listing is available at http://nm.debian.org/nmlist.php) and offer to
sponsor them.  This would ensure good applicants and would make the
job of the AM easier.

If it works, then the NM process could be changed so that everyone has
to go through a sponsorship by the QA group before they can apply to
become a maintainer.  The problem is that this will only apply for
applicants who want to join Debian as a packager.  What about people
who want to translate web pages or write documentation?  If they don't
have to go through the sponsorship, I could imagine that many people
will say they will join Debian as a translator and once they are
accpeted start uploadig packages.
