Hello Laurent,

I see that Sébastien only maintains two packages and he is not DM

Since New Maintainer is often confused with "New DM", I'd like to make
sure that this is not an advocacy for DM that somehow got mistargeted.

We also prefer that one has had some experience as DM before applying
for DD: having DM experience generally makes the NM process much

This does not mean that we reject all applications from people who were
not DM before, but it'd be nice to have the advocate provide a reason,
especially for people who maintain few packages, for which there is a
hurry to get a DD account now, and DM (which is more immediate to get
and requires much less work) wouldn't do.
