I don't directly know your work, and I'm not advocating for you.

However, I think you should consider this: If you have been an active
Debian contributor for 12 years, even if it is via sponsored uploads,
I believe you will find no opposition if you go straight for the DD

Up to you to decide. Becoming a DM is simple and quick, and requires
much less hassle than becoming a DD (for very important trust
reasons). But I believe throughout this time you have surely material
to show to the project you "really mean it" :-]
