Sounds great -- welcome. Once you've created an account and done the
first few other steps at
<https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Join_the_package_collection_maintainers>,
one way to get involved other than finding some random software to
package would be to find existing packages you're interested in, and
apply for co-maintainership. See the bottom of the page at 
<http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_get_sponsored_into_the_packager_group> 
for more on this.
