I've been somewhat AWOL on this the past few months due to a number of
Real Life factors. While I can't dedicate the amount of time I
previously had, my hope is that I can spend some time looking at this

It may take a bit to page in the state, though. If somebody else
wants to run with it, I'll happily act as a reference.

Concrete, actionable steps with individual ownership. Not ownership
of code, of course, but somebody who will be accountable for getting X
done for the release.
