Take a look at the packages /you/ use and like:
* Check for known bugs, fix them and send patches to BTS.
* Missing manpages?
* Other documentation

If you do not find anything here take a look at the list of
work-needing packages (wnpp) or the RC bugs.

It is not too improbable that you'll stumble upon a package that has
not seen an update for a long time and that the maintainer would be
happy to give it to you, but afaik it is not necessary to be a package
maintainer to become a debian developer (But you should show that you
are able to maintain a package.)
