Eli, this is a kind offer, but it misses the point, really. Having you
do the work doesn't make the work less, especially if, as Stefan says,
there is a ticket system there already. And, having you as a single
point of failure is not that scalable. Even if I get magit done, there
are many other packages out there, and I am not going to do them all.
