Well, given the tone on the Wiki page:

 "Evidence of a high work rate and productivity..."
 "It takes some time to become an Ubuntu Maintainer. The Community
 Council will not appoint someone as a maintainer until they have proven
 themselves not only technically but also in terms of the other social
 criteria for maintainership."

I decided to hold off a little on the becoming-a-maintainer thing. I
would be interested in maintaining those packages, but becoming a
full-fledged Ubuntu maintainer sounds like a bit too much for me right

Software is not manufactured, it is something you write and publish.
