nice! More tooling is good.

I would say that is a interesting list. Ideally, all our packages are
in LTS, so these are packages where we could try to convince upstream
to join Stackage.

I’m not sure if that is really useful. I don’t think we have too few
packages in Debian – if anything, we have too many. So I do not see any
value in just adding „all of Stackage“. Or what is your intention here?
