(a) For source stuff, the morgue on ftp-master has (ttbomk) complete
copies of all sources uploaded going a few years back now. Accessible
only to ftpmaster (or ftpteam?) atm, but available on request if needed.

(b) As far as looking for people is concerned, I don't have time :(

(c) As far as authorising funds (for this or other things) goes, please
give a concrete amount that's needed, a definite statement of what the
purpose/benefit is, and where possible Cc a public mailing list like
this one. (And don't be afraid to repeatedly nag me, particularly on IRC,
if I don't get around to replying)
