The main requirements:

- Be able to test on pkgsrc system.

- NetBSD as platform is not required, but you should be willing to adapt 
  the package as appropriate for NetBSD.

- Also be willing to work with other pkgsrc platforms, especially 

- Usually be willing to work with end-users who submit problem reports.

- Don't upgrade the package to beta or testing versions (unless it is 
  specifically noted to be a testing package.)

- Usually be willing to submit changes, suggestions and improvements 
  upstream.  (That will be easy for you :)

If you don't have commit access you can send diffs via a gnats PR or 
contact a developer to work with.
