A list of projects I just thought of - I have no clue how much work
there are in them - and wether they have really been started already
Have a working debian-installer from debian-live - (one of the good
thins ubuntu has done - we want one of those)
get d-i working
a automatic tool to easy show "same files" across packages - to make it
easy to find if weird-licensed stuff is in other packages also - or in
other packages with better licenses.
Automatic tests of wether a program *works* (I know - difficult ;)
Something with improvement of usertags
some kind of program running locally to help manipulating bugs
Make it easy to divide the bug count in big packages in smaller bunches
Make it possible to assign bugs to people (especially in teams)
Study source-only uploads - and maybe implements technical solutions to
"not break arm if people keeps throwing sources at the buildds until it
builds" and arch:all packages.

not me - but I_thought of posting my ideas anyway.
