Immediately two things come to my mind:

  * AMO-Editors (you could post an invite or other blurb to
    amo-editors-internal at mozilla.org)

  * Thunderbird Add-On Authors (maybe invite Thunderbird specialists on
    mozilla.dev.extensions)

Apart from IRC that's probably the most likely pool of people who would be 
knowledgeable enough and willing to contribute.
