Subject: [gentoo-project] Maintainer for Compiz?

Hello, I've asked this question around in the IRC, and I've done a bit of Googling, but I haven't been able to find anything on this, so I hope that this is the correct place to ask. Apparently, the Compiz-fusion package is masked because it lacks a maintainer. However, from what it looks like it's not a proxied maintainer, as it's not on the list. I was thinking of stepping up to be a maintainer for it, but I'm assuming that would mean writing patches for it. I do have a relatively OK understanding of C and C++, but I don't know if it would be good enough to be able to write patches for it. So, I guess what I'm asking is what exactly would maintaining the package entail, and how would I go about becoming a maintainer?
Also, I really hope this isn't the wrong place to ask, as I didn't go straight to here before doing some research, hopefully it isn't though...
