Thanks for offer to help on #1.

As for #2 & #3, I agree but also remind people that stuff may be not
even up to date for v3.3 (in sme cases it may be waaaaay out of date)
so the "clean up" and "updating" work needs to be quite in-depth...
often involving a lot of testing, something that inexperienced
volunteer writers often don't do.
