I think that should be one of the main goals of the openSUSE Conference. To turn those veteran users into contributors, removing single points of failure in the process.
There are quite some things within the project that would benefit from more hands, and sure there are some hands looking for something to do. We should have a series of talks/workshops/BoFs about that.
In my side, I plan to have session "openSUSE needs you: software.opensuse.org" (tentative title) to fix the issue that the mentioned page highly depends on coolo and myself looking for some spare minutes now and then, with no time to do deep changes/fixes.
What sort of help are you after with software.o.o ?
Sorry for the late reply. I have been busy.
I'm trying to summarize and shape everything into a talk. But, here are some links grouped by topic, in no particular order:
1) Content (wording, info available, organization, etc.)
http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-web/2015-11/msg00001.html https://github.com/openSUSE/software-o-o/issues/39 (related to previous) https://progress.opensuse.org/issues/8804 https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=953927 https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=865731 https://github.com/openSUSE/software-o-o/issues/55
2) Searching and communication with OBS (most of them are caused by wrong assumptions from software.o.o on how the distro and/or ports are handled in OBS)
https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=953773 https://progress.opensuse.org/issues/10490 https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=930505 https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=948370 https://github.com/openSUSE/software-o-o/issues/57 https://github.com/openSUSE/software-o-o/issues/56
As you can see, the whole thing needs some love. Even the automated tests are broken right now.
My challenge is to come up with a understandable full picture and kind of a plan so I can scream for help in more concrete ways (although the call from help in the first link was already focused enough... and didn't resulted in any help).

PS.- cc'ing people who already contacted me off-list asking for details.
