I would encourage anyone with skills in accessibility and programming 
to get involved in NVU. Daniel Glazman, the lead developer, is (in my 
opinion and experience) an intelligent, open, standards-oriented 
accessibility-friendly developer. He is responsible for some of the 
accessibility improvements in Netscape/Mozilla composer, occasionally 
at the urging of accessibility people.

But like any open source project, the most helpful thing is 
documentation or code. Failing that, thorough testing, and clear 
explanation of what is missing, backed by a reasonably solid functional 
knowledge of the systems involved...
