First, check out [1]. Also please subscribe to openstack-stable-maint@
mailing list [2]. You can start helping the team by applying the rules
from [1] to existing backport reviews. Once team members see your work
for a while, you will be able to join the team and get +2 vote for
stable branches.

Welcome!
