There is much to do... depends on your interest:
- 2.5 kernel work (check out the parisc-linux mailing list)
- hppa toolchain, especially binutils and gdb
- porting more packages to hppa. a lot of packages still need work for
  C++, etc (http://auric.debian.org/~tausq/buildd/hppa-latest.html has a
  list of packages that don't yet build for various reasons)

for installer work, debian-installer probably doesn't work on hppa yet,
so you can look at that as well.

have fun :-)
