As far as I understand the beureaucratic requirements, that's not a 
problem. What counts for the purposes of application is that I have a 
mentor and that I'm actively contributing. I'm at a loss as to what counts 
as actively contributing though, since I can't upload until I'm a 
developer and existing maintainers are unlikely to upload packages 
prepared by me (except by prior agreement like we have here). Perhaps 
doing anything that gets one listed in the changelog is enough? What did 
you have to do when you were applying?
