Declaration of intent
The most important requirement for changing status in Debian is to make sure that a person actually intends to do so.

For nm.debian.org, on 2022-06-01:
I, Dato, Debian Developer emeritus since 2020-05-25, would like to
apply to change my status in Debian to Debian Developer, uploading.
My main initial focus would be maintaining a series of updated packages
for buster-backports. In regards to this, I've already performed this
for several of them in a work-related context, and uploaded to private
repositories, as well as Ubuntu PPAs (see, for example, SQLAlchemy 1.4
backports at https://launchpad.net/~dato/+archive/ubuntu/sqlalchemy).
I would love to see this contribution back in Debian proper, in coordination
with existing maintainers—taking care of their maintenance throughout buster’s
Finally, I was an AM (very briefly) in the past, and this is non-coding
contribution I toy with picking up again at some point in the future,
perhaps next year once I'm up to date again with current policies.
Many thanks in advance.
