I guess I didn't communicate the accessibility part of it very well. I am interested in doing work for accessibility package, those that either aren't maintained, or if someone is interested in dropping them, or having a co-maintainer. Also, for packages that required to build them. I noticed a while back the package dotconf was orphaned, for example, and it is required to build speech-dispatcher. My list of packages related to accessibility in my original post wasn't a list I planned on maintaining specifically, unless it became necessary, it was just a list of example of the type of stuff in which I have an interest.
I am also willing to take up some of the packages that don't have maintainers atm, as well as helping out however I can.
