The best packaging projects are usually ones you have some sort of
interest in personally, because you use it or your workplace uses it
or something like that. It sounds like gnaural would be a good project
for you to work on packaging, especially since it used to be in
Debian, but was removed. Due to the removal there are some extra steps
to take when reintroducing it, apart from the normal steps of
introducing a new package.
If you decide not to package gnuaural, how-can-i-help is a great way
to find another package already in Debian you use that needs love.
