I did originally apply for uploading, as it seemed the default way, but I struggled to find sponsors. I've deliberately avoided collecting a large QA page so I can avoid leaving any to bitrot, but that means I don't have much experience with difficult packages. I think it's fair to say I don't meet the requirement to "be trusted to have full, unsupervised, unrestricted upload right now". https://email@example.com Additionally my most recent involvement, which I apparently omitted from my Intent, has been more around the onboarding of new contributors and coordination of others' work on kotlin. I enjoy being in a supportive role and am ok with finding initial sponsors followed by upload delegation on a per-package basis. The only DD restriction I'll miss out on is the ability to directly sponsor uploads from mentors.debian.net. I'm also intrigued to see if more long-time DMs join me in becoming DD non-uploading first, and sooner in their contribution lifetime.
