If it helps, we are looking for (for example) workflow changes, large
refactoring work, new features of our tools, specific reproducibility
fixes, etc. etc.  But crucially they should fit in that sweet spot of
(a) requiring more time and energy than a weekend project, but (b) are
also not too complicated that they would take forever and that (c)
they are actually possible to 'complete' in a satisfactory manner.

If they could (d) benefit a lot of people and have a big impact, that
would naturally be beneficial over a potential 'personal' need… :)
