For whats it worth I'm willing to assist.

I suggest that you'll establish some kind of process to maximize the
collaborative effort. For example, when reviewing new patches there are
multiple issues to consider:
 - platform compatibility
 - does it play well with the existing tests?
 - is it aligned with the existing coding style? I'm not talking about
indentation and stuff although these are very important also, but about the
coding "philosophy" (now thats a big word) behind curl.
 - how large is the user base that will benefit from the patch?

BTW, I tried once (not to hard though) to run the tests on windows without
luck. Are they known to work? If not, this is probably a very important
