Yes, I'm willing to volunteer.  I will do so in a few days if no-one

I'll double check the facts of course.  If I have also see if I can
understand the situation in each case well enough to make a
recommendation.  It seems at the very least that many of these issues
are "within" a particular family of packages.  Hopefully they won't
mostly be as bad as "node".
