Thanks for the reply!  Looks like there are plenty of opportunities to start helping in the project.  Most immediately I could begin work on the documentation, however I would also like to try to bite a chunk out of one of the larger tasks as well.  

I am particularly interested in bringing Ubuntu Studio to a liveDVD setup.  Before I get ahead of myself I should probably ask what is involved since my programming skills are not the best. ;) Also, are there any other tasks that need to be taken care of first?
