There are a few requirements for GNU maintainers. I know of these ones:
Allow me to cc: the Savannah hackers public mailing list, where the
real experts dwell, so they can point out any additional requirements.
Don't be frightened by the size of the linked document; most of them

The GNU project is (legally, morally and physically) responsible for
GNU projects. While the GNU project provides a hosting site for
