I'd try making a spec page on the Ubuntu wiki
( https://wiki.ubuntu.com ), something like
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/OutOfBoxIpodSupport (I just made that up, it
will be a blank page), along with an entry in Launchpad. Say exactly
what your idea is and how it would be implemented, then work on as much
of it as you can, pointing people to the page wherever sensible (like on
this list, in the forums, etc.). Admittedly a spec often doesn't get
much attention since there are so many, but doing what you can to
implement and spread knowledge about it should get you somewhere.

Hope that helps,
Chris
