Actually that only seemed to have worked.  IIRC, we were missing some
repos so there are false positives there.

Yep, just needs someone with commit access.  Strange that you've never
offered to do this.  As we say in the states "Talk is cheap".  Bringing
loose complaints to this list is not even close to the right thing to do
and while I'd normally let it slide, I'm going to spell it out because you
should know better, you're an experienced valued contributor.

We have a ticketing system.  If you want something done go there.
Second, I'm the only full time person paid to work on Infrastructure 100%
of my time.  After a year of this script not working and multiple
rewrites.  I've taken a calculated decision not to work on it.  It sort of
works, it emails people, etc.  I've got 6 months of back log to work on of
stuff that volunteers just won't do.  Just like this script for some
reason, there's some stuff that people don't step up and say "I'll take
responsibility for this and see it through to conclusion"

And thus the problem, you've become a complainer.  Think real hard about
what you're trying to accomplish.  Then ask yourself how the above
attitude will actually accomplish that.  You've asked for the list (not
that it will be helpful to you) so I've included it.
