You might need to be a little careful with this one. A package can be
quite useful to a small audience. I don't have any specific examples,
but I can imagine such a package that is stable (thus unfrequently
updated) and might well be the only source of such functionality. Of
course, such a package wouldn't have a bunch of RC bugs, either.

Regarding other comments, I think the one month/two month periods are
bit short - people do take vacations. 

Other than that, good proposal.
