Hinting to ftpmaster on IRC (#debian-ftp) *sometimes* helps to unblock

Admittedly I usually start with lower hanging fruits to have the
pleasure of quick success.

Currently I'm not working on anything in bcbio TODO.  Usually you see
commits of the packages where I'm working very frequently and update the
TODO accordingly.

I once started with snpeff a long time ago since it was needed
independently from bcbio but as you realised it has quite some
dependency tree.  To continue this is in upper range of my todo list as
well as gatk.  In the next couple of days I intend to work on libARB to
separate it from arb and help qiime2 dependencies.

May be it helps to sort the TODO list according to priority.  This would
help interested developers to pick a random one from top. 

Kind regards
