Hi Zach,
  sorry for the delay, actually no, you don't need to register anywhere,
we use to say that in Debian "everybody is QA" and it happens to be
true. The main coordination places are this list and the #debian-qa
channel on irc.debian.org. For some tasks it does help to be a DD (which
I don't know if it is your case or not), but there are *a lot* of other
things that can be done, and which are really helpful, that do not even
require that.

The starting point I suggest you is
http://wiki.debian.org/qa.debian.org/ , which has a nice introduction
about Debian QA, and also a list of things that need to be worked on.

Welcome on board!
