As we install the how-can-i-help package on the Freedombox now, it is
easy to get a list of packages we use that need a hand.  This is the
current list.  It was worse than I thought.

Basic crypto stuff need help, we lost our XMPP server in testing and
are about to loose our setup package too.  Perhaps you can help?

Happy hacking
