Yeah. Anything on this (long) list should be ok for us to work on, if
my quick inspection of the options selected is correct:

Full list of bugs affecting debian testing (contains non-free and
contrib, view with care).

I'll work on a list here [0] which people can refer to. Please feel

debian, or just things we'd want to fix anyway.
