It seems to me that at the time you are maintaining only one package
(aegisub), and on that one package you only interacted in one upload,
doing very small changes.

I'm not convinced that that's enough to justify DM permissions; I'm not
talking about the "one package" thing (we have many DMs only for single
packages), but rather that you did only one upload.
And also, I couldn't spot your email address in my own email archive
prior to January 9th, i.e. just 2 months ago.  Tendentially, we try to
have people with upload rights be with us for a little longer.

Also this advocacy, it mostly talks about stuff that is not related to
Debian; although it definitely is useful to know that he is a
knowledgable Debian user, that doesn't really speak much of his
abilities as a package maintainer, nor any of his knowledge about the
Debian procedures.

I'd honestly prefer if he could be sponsored for a little longer, but I
accept disagreements from the other readers of debian-newmaint@ :)
