I would like to improve my TeX skills by following the development of actively developed packages. I findingwould like to give back by taking on some of the low hanging fruit among the issues/bug-reports of a package.

Any platform will do: Github, Bitbucket, Gitorious, Launchpad, etc...

Would you consider launchpad? – Loop Space Feb 8 '12 at 20:45
This question should probably be CW. – doncherry Feb 9 '12 at 9:35
In our meta site, we have a list of package maintainers who are TeX.sx residents. We are updating that list in order to include public code repositories. It's worth a look. :) – Paulo Cereda Feb 9 '12 at 11:38

Here are some tex.sx celebrities who have github/bitbucket accounts.

My finding of these was rather unscientific. Please do add more.

I'm not sure about being a 'celebrity' :-) – Joseph Wright Feb 8 '12 at 20:24
@JosephWright: No, Joseph, you're an 'eminence'. – Brent.Longborough Feb 8 '12 at 20:52

SageTeX is hosted at Bitbucket. It's a somewhat unusual package, though, since it's primarily about using mathematics software in document preparation (similar to Sweave), so it may not be exactly what you are looking for. Or maybe that makes it more what you are looking for...
