Hi Johan,

This is a very kind offer.

Can I suggest the Rasdaman project?

 It is very close to graduation from incubation and help would be welcome to get it over the line.

There has also been discussion in the past related to packaging Rasdaman for the Debian related projects. This may also be of interest to you.

Hello everyone,

During recent discussions on the discussion mailing list and others I
noticed that incubation could use some help.

I have gained some experience in checking licenses when packaging for
debian (I have removed files from saga (eg [1]) and libharu when
packaging. Checking code for licenses became part of my second nature
(eg [2]).

So if there are any projects in incubation which could use some help,
I'm available to help.

It may also be worth pointing out that debian has some pretty nifty
tools such as licensecheck (in package devscripts) and some lintian
checks (when you create a package) that tend to help finding offenders
without browsing all source (which still has to be done).
