Who adds when upload privileges for a DM? - Best practice


I was recently asked by a Debian maintainer (DM) to enable him/her to
upload a package to Debian (dcut dm --allow ...). Since I am not
that familiar with DM I searched for some kind of best practice
document on DM. However I only found documention on how to apply for
DM and how to upload to Debian as DM but not the other side. So I
asking here. ;-)

I *suspect* that usually this just happens as the natural continuation
of sponsorship. First a DD would sponsor a specific package and later
when the sponsor's contribution mainly consists of debsign he/she
would set upload privileges.

Is this correct? Are orphaned packages handled differently?

Thanks in advance, kind regards
