I think interested people should join the relevant teams.  

I personally maintain one such team, ubuntu-clamav, and while I'm sure I 
wouldn't have any problem with any ubuntu-dev that wanted to join, I do like 
to make sure people understand what we're trying to accomplish in the team 
before the upload things.

Myself, I don't like being listed in Launchpad as a member of teams I've 
really nothing to do with.
