The Perl group is kind of an odd duck in that a substantial part of the
work of the group is just doing package uploading, because there are so
few bugs, so many packages, and usually the only actions on packages are
minor tweaks and new upstream releases.  I'm not sure there are many other
teams like that.

Of course, I also think that you'd be a good DD, at least from my
experience watching you work.  :)
