There is no documentation for the process.  I believe the "process" is
to file a bug against ftp.debian.org, and be available to the FTP

Even *without* official space on the Debian archive, it is *very* easy
to run your own little archive, with upload queue and all that.  All
the tools are freely available.  You wouldn't be able to symlink in
the architecture-independant packages as they do in the main archive,
but this is easily worked around (mirroring binary-all, for instance).
