They aren't very demanding. A genuine interest is more or less enough.

Yes, guarding BFAV is probably the most important thing. I don't expect
a maintainer to necessarily evolve a package a lot - just as long as
he/she integrates what others write.

Well, Celeste 1.22 is packaged as a Monticello package - and it says
that it does "file in properly" in 3.7beta. So I think you should simply
learn Monticello. :)

Well, Celeste being an official "Full" package it simply means that you
need to make sure it works fine in the latest current 3.7beta. And of
course verify this when we get ready to release 3.7.
