Hi, It is not necessary to have packaging experience. But if it interests you, it can be learnt over time.
There are plenty of roles you could take to help keep Ubuntu Studio alive. Checkout our wiki, and all the different roles and teams, and sign up! https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudio Let us know what you would like to try working on, and what experience you have. What do you use US for at the moment? As a first step to helping with the up and coming releases, you could test the Artful & Bionic Daily ISO images, and report your results (good and bad): http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/ Of course, I have been focusing on testing, but there is bug triage, documentation, website, joining in on forums/mailing lists, and trying to help users as best as you can...........
