The process leading to acceptation of new Debian Maintainers is mainly administrative today and is handled by the Newmaint team. In order to simplify this process further, the team wants to integrate their workflow into nm.debian.org's interface so that prospective maintainers can send their application online and the Newmaint team review it from within the website.
We need your help to implement the missing pieces into nm.debian.org. It is written in Python and using Django. If you have some experience with that, you should definitely join the newmaint-site mailing list and ask for the details. Enrico or someone else in the list will do their best to share their vision and explain the needed work in order to get this properly implemented!
It doesn't matter if you're already a Debian Developer to be able to contribute to this project. Anyone can step up and help!
