If you want to package software, look at

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/Join

If you want to help out with reviews,

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/ReviewGuidelines

Any doubts? Ask.

It can be fairly misleading. Source packages are better for comparisons.
Where are you getting the numbers from anyway? Debian and derivatives
typically include "contrib" and "non-free" as part of the project. So
you will have to add RPM Fusion packages to make it somewhat equivalent.

In rawhide, I have a total of 15,549 packages. I am sure Ubuntu would
have more, being a Debian derivative. I am pretty sure, Fedora is
growing faster however.
