Yes. I would be happy for us to tackle this together.

In terms of my own background, I tested the original device
orientation implementation in Opera Presto. I have also written a few
orientation-based web-apps and I have also previously edited other W3C
specs.

I like the idea of doing this on Github mostly for its ability to
track pull requests via its web interface. Doing this on Github may
also come in handy for getting wider input from developers (e.g. for
obtaining [ bug fixes / feedback / more JavaScript-based API examples
] for the spec).
