Yes, you should ask in the mailing list, as the administrator wont
receive your request automatically.

Please upload the packages somewhere so that I can review them (it
doesn't have to be mentors.d.o, as long as you give the link to your
.dsc file and that I can download faster than 10K/s).

I don't think you need to put them on the Git before I have a look, this
will make a bigger Git history for no reasons. Most of the time, I try
to polish my packages before starting a Git repo.

I don't have the admin rights for the project, someone else will have to
accept it.
