How about not combining two different topics? I don't see a reason why a
discussion about a way to provide LTS needs to get shot with the suggestion to
help with some random package instead. Of course you definitely have a point in
that some/a lot of packages need work, but I think it is also reasonable to
discuss a strategy for a desirable (IMO) long-term goal.
