To help you get starting with other projects I simply describe what I did:

    1. Go to https://salsa.debian.org/debian/
       (debian/ group is the new collab-maint - go to other group for
        other projects)
    2. Click green button "New project"
    3. Top line in center widget has three options "Blank project" (default),
       "Create from template" and "Import project" -> choose "Import project"
    4. In the field "Git repository URL" inject Vcs-Git in mc case
    5. Make sure "Project name" has taken over "mc" (this does not work
    6. "Project Desctiption": Midnight Commander - a powerful file manager
    7. Green button "Create project"
    8. Settings -> Members -> Add Member
           Dmitry Smirnov   /  master  (I'd set all active members to master)
       Denis Briand and Yury V. Zaytsev do not seem to have an account yet
             -> please register

    9. ssh git.debian.org "rm -rf /git/collab-maint/mc.git"

I'm available for sponsering (or any other non-packaging related help)
if needed.

Thanks to all who actively care for MC in Debian
