First I think that is a great goal, but I want to pick up on Dean's comment:

I think OSC (and client-facing tooling in general) is a great place for 
OpenStack users (deployers of OpenStack clouds) to contribute. It's a 
smaller territory, it's less time-consuming than the service side, they 
are the most obvious interested party, and a small, 20% time investment 
would have a dramatic impact.

It's arguably difficult for OpenStack users to get involved in 
"OpenStack development": keeping track of what's happening in a large 
team is already likely to consume most of the time you can dedicate to 
it. But OSC is a specific, smaller area which would be a good match for 
the expertise and time availability of anybody running an OpenStack 
cloud that wants to contribute back and make OpenStack better.

Shameless plug: I proposed a Forum session in Berlin to discuss "Getting 
OpenStack users involved in the project" -- and we'll discuss such areas 
that are a particularly good match for users to get involved.
