Thanks for your interest in Debian!  Yes, we can always use more help --
there is always far more QA work to be done than there are people with time
to do it. :)

Manpages are certainly an area in need of ongoing work; for a list of known
programs in Debian that are missing manpages, please see
<http://lintian.debian.org/reports/Tbinary-without-manpage.html>.  For other
ideas where contribution might be welcome, there's a list of packages whose
maintainers are requesting help at
<http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/help_requested>, a miscellaneous TODO list
at <http://www.debian.org/devel/todo/>, and of course, a list of
release-critical issues for etch at
<http://bugs.debian.org/release-critical/>.  I'm confident there should be
something on one of these pages to hold your interest, regardless of skill

Beyond that, of course, Debian is a very self-organizing group, so you're
welcome to work on whatever you think is most appropriate -- the help is
definitely welcome, but you probably aren't going to find anybody here to
tell you what you *should* work on. :)

Cheers and welcome,
Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
