I’d also like to have a one-stop, definite, false-positive free of
blockers, but unfortunately that does not exist.

Everything mentioned complained about by
is a blocken. Currently that includes removals by the FTP-Team (unless
you are on the team there is not much you can do besides occasional
nagging) and representable-tries, where upstream seems to be unable to
come up with a quick solution:

So one useful thing to do would be to try to patch representable-tries
to build again.

Another useful resource is
where you can check for unexpected build failures on other
architectures. But a single issue (like the haskell-tls-on-sparc issue)
can cause many crosses there, so it takes time to actually find the
cause of some issues.

Finally, the list of RC-critical bugs
is a good place to look at for useful work. #746083 for example is new
and seems reasonably simple to fix.
