This should be obvious. Track the packages you are interested in,
adopt them if they get orphaned, provide fixes or other changes where
possible/needed, ping the maintainer if they seem to need help,
contact the QA team if they are MIA and hijack if nessecary. Further
information is in the developers-reference:
