It seems like not a day goes by where I don't see someone asking for
help building, installing, or using a package in the comments of a
deletion or orphan request.
I know that several methods have been tried to reduce this, but they
haven't helped — so has anyone considered bowing to the inevitable and
adding an "Assistance" request type to the "Submit Request" dropdown,
and of course making it the default?
It could simply post a comment on the package page, perhaps with a
special flag, or perhaps have it email the package maintainer.
