Fairly quick, based on the existing patch.

Mostly mailing people and waiting.

That could be a task.

Not so trivial, but could be a task.

That's mostly a design issue, not much coding.

Non-trivial bugfix.

Is already working in principle, potential bugfixes apart.

My concern is thus that apart from the CD images, tasks are either very
small, or quite difficult. One thing that could be added would be to
manage to have our own "testing" distribution, independent from the
official testing distribution. That would help installability a lot.

Of course, I'm not opposed at all to proposing the idea and even
mentoring, I'm just unsure it can fit.
