IceCat is maintained by volunteers on a "labor of love" basis. As such, community participation is essential, in order to keep the project healthy and serving the interests of it's users. Anyone who is interested in packaging IceCat or liberated versions of other Mozilla programs, and anyone who would like to help with documentation or artwork, or who may wish simply to voice their opinions (aka. bike-shed) about aspects of it's development; such as: which features should be enabled or disabled, what the home page should look like, what is the default search engine, etc, is encouraged to subscribe to the 'gnuzilla-dev' mailing list, or request to join the Gnuzilla team on Savannah.
