Thanks for your interest in joining Debian,
The official path is described at: http://www.debian.org/devel/join/
but if you really want to help improving the current health of Debian you will
probably want to start with the Bug Tracking System first:
http://www.debian.org/Bugs/ , especially the last section giving pointers to
release critical and still open bug reports. There is a lot of information,
so take your time to read it carefully ;-)
You can also find out a neglected package you intend to use at
http://mentors.debian.net along with debian-mentors mailing list could be a
good start for newcomers to ask for help, review, pointers and eventually
uploads; of course being familiar with Debian Policy and Debian Developer's
Reference would be also necessary.
