I believe I have issued such an invitation.

Initially, there are large parts of the coast and significant coastal
waterways, lakes, islands, and other features, etc that are still nonCT
that could benefit from the assistance of careful mappers from around the
world.  These are clearly visible in OSM Inspector.

There are historical and other resources to assist in remapping these (in
particular naming bays and rivers) which I can give pointers to.

For those more experienced in remapping/osm, the availability of hi-res and
well aligned maps in urban areas a few years ago in au resulted in lots of
aerial imagery based "tweaks".  Roads were split extensively to add
roundabouts, traffic slands and speed zones and remapped.  These are easy
to recognise once you start looking, and there often is good data (well,
better than nothing data) to be rescued in the history.  ost transition its
going to be harder to locate the relevant change sets.

Assistance with these sort of tasks  would free up local resources to do
the local street mapping.
