That is a great idea! There does not seem to be much local Debian
activity, despite the number of DDs living here, and this is a good
way to help revert that, and help the release!

Have you thought of a place, or talked with anybody about that? I'm
thinking the TOG might be a good place.

I'd participate and/or help organise.

I think BSPs usually focus on fixing problems for packages already in
Debian, specially RC bugs. But nobody would discourage you from
working on your packages and getting help from other people doing so!
