Basically, a DD from Debian Perl group should review your work and upload the 
package (or get back to you with improvement suggestions)

A mail like this one is the right way. Although the title of the mail should 
indicate that your requesting a review.

Also, you should provide links to let people download your work. A link to the 
git repo on salsa is enough.

please see https://wiki.debian.org/DebianDeveloper/JoinTheProject

In any case, you need to become familiar with the project and its practices 
before applying. Updating Perl packages is a good way to do it. I did start 
this way 10 years ago.
