Probably it's a good idea to maintain wiki.debian.org/YourName anyway,
whether you're a DD, a DM, an NM or a prospective NM.
But I guess it makes most sense for prospective NMs - document your
contributions to Debian there (maybe with some small paragraph about
your motivation) and Front Desk (and later your AM) will have it much
easier to match an AM and/or check your contributions.
Personally, I'd like to see this formalized in the NM process, but maybe
some of the AMs (those who think this is a good idea) should just try it
out and report back on how useful it is.
I am not sure 6 months of sustained contributions is really necessary, I
think "several months" or "sustained contributions" are alright, where
both measures are up for interpretation depending on the type, quality
and quantity of the contributions.
