It is a start, but as Ed also asked:

I also would like to contribute, and I also would like a little more guidance on how best to do so. :-)
While I'm asking questions along those lines, let me also ask this:
Who's writing shapers right now? Which ones?
I'd be happy to contribute by assisting folks with ongoing work and/or writing a new one (Behdad had suggested Khmer as a possibility for the latter).
