The how-can-i-help package is a way to get an idea where Debian need
help to maintain the packages you care about and use.  It run every
time you do 'apt-get upgrade', and let you know which packages you
have installed need help.

Here is the output from my freshly upgraded Freedombox.  Perhaps you
can help with one of these?
