I think that joining the pkg-fonts-devel team mailing list is the
first step to go, certainly.

We are about a dozen of people who mostly maintain a few font
packages. The package are not precisely "team-maintained" but more
maintained by one of the individuals in the team, but the packages
source is in the team's SVN, which allows for peer review and some
kind of collaborative maintenance (and some take over in case the
regular maintainer happens to be missing).

We have 3 lists:
-devel for discussion
-bugs for bugs about font packages (we subscribe the packages PTS to
the list)
-commits for SVN commits

To join, you can subscribe to

Of course, also, all requirements for the creation of Debian packages
apply also to font packages. So, creating one requires that the
relevant person learns about Debian packaging. Of course, other team
members may help in that matter.

Thanks, Manoj, that was certainly the Right Thing to do..:)
