You need to create a fas-account, apply for the packager-group and
create a package review request in bugzilla that includes the
information that you need to be sponsored.

A potential sponsor will probably want to see a litte more work done by

so doing a couple of 'pre-reviews' of packages (font or not) is probably
a good idea.
