That is true.  However, what you may be interested in, Brett, is more of a
mentor, where an experienced Debian person helps you with stuff you're
interested in relating to Debian.  PR is handled through press@debian.org,
which is Martin Schulze behind the scenes.  Documentation is generally
coordinated through the debian-doc mailing list.  I'd recommend subscribing
and posting a message there asking if there's anyone who'd be willing to
help you get started.  Be prepared to read a lot of random stuff, or end up
doing so fairly basic work to begin with.

If there's anyone here on d-mentors who'd be interested in giving Brett a
bit of a hand, please speak up here or mail Brett directly.
