Instead your first step should be running wnpp-alert and helping maintain a 
package you already have installed.  If you are lucky enough to have nothing 
reported by wnpp-alert or just can't help there, rc-alert is also a good 
place to start.  Both of these tools should be better publicized.

New packages are fine, but there seems to be a constant need for more 
maintainers of the packages that already exist.
