@mcsinyx there is much to do, it really depends on your skills.
#fedeproxy is not an organization, it is a #horizontal community of individuals ( see https://fedeproxy.eu/blog/2021/01/10/manifesto/ for details). Each person involved is either participating on a volunteer basis or finds ways to get funding for their work.
For instance, I applied for funding back in January and a grant will pay me a salary (1,500€ net per month) to work on fedeproxy for the next 9 months.
Thanks, @dachary! My motivation is simple: I grew tired of having to sign up for every other GitLab instance for contributions that are often one-off, or even worse, commenting. If something can solve that and there is something I can do about it, I would love to. Of the works you listed, I am most confident with writing implementation (TBF there are code I enjoy writing and code I don't 😉). Here is my portfolio if you want to get a sense of my past experiences: https://cnx.srht.site/works
