Eh... Well, I personally don't feel we need another tiny editor.
Please review all the editors under Debian (ae, nvi, joe, ...) before
deciding to add another.

I would suggest

(a) adopt a package off the WNPP list

(b) adopt a documentation package if you think you are good at writing
    and at learning and at talking to people and discovering and
    documenting best current practices.  If you are interested in
    this, join <debian-doc@lists.debian.org> and ask what you can do
    to help, outlining your competencies.
