I believe Debian VoIP group <pkg-voip-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org>

Well, the most hectic part now is fixing Release Critical bugs [1]. These are 
mostly things one need to test a bit, reproduce the problem, and find a way 
to produce a decent fix. You can try to deal with some of these, and send a 
patch to BTS (bug tracking system) in case of success.
