Feedback is very welcome, that's why I dropped this a few weeks in

I'm not sure if one fix per year outweighs the amount of wasted time of
bug reporters that file reports against the "official" part just to end
up in silence, and silence is my impression recently.

A good idea, please go ahead if you have contacts (as I wouldn't know
who to ask).

Yes, that's my plan, as the workload for incoming Extras reports (like
CSSU reports) and general administration is rather small and could be
continued in freetime by volunteers.
