The DM status is meant for people who are already maintaining packages
in Debian through a sponsor:


I would encourage you to get involved in the team responsible for the
development of apt, since that is one of the core tools that is
written in C++.

Unfortunately wnpp-alert doesn't yet know how to filter using debtags,
but you could feed its output to 'apt-cache show' in order to find
packages needing help that have a "implemented-in::c++" debtag.

At this point in time (during the release freeze), the best use of
your time would be to help fix RC bugs, this mail contains some good
hints for that:

Please check the keysigning offers for your area and if there are no
Debian members in your area, please add yourself to the list of people
needing keysigning.
