I'd just like to also say that Jonathan has been an excellent contributor to Debian-perl and that I also have not felt the need to become a Debian Developer although it is a worthy goal and something that I plan to pursue. Contribution in this group is quite meritocratic, if you make good packages they'll get uploaded, at least that has been my experience. One good thing about not becoming a DD is that you then can't go MIA (Missing in Action).
Warm welcome and I'd recommend some of the links here: http://pkg-perl.alioth.debian.org/
Also, people are quite active in the debian-perl channel on irc.debian.org.
