I can do this and try to add an additional interface where people can
request a specific package from extra also be signed off when

This is silly. What's the point of web based signoffs if you're going
to fill your inbox anyway? I can add a summary to the dashboard if you
aren't accustomed to actually looking at the signoff page. If you
don't look at the dashboard then... well my work here is done.

Maybe a one click move action in the signoffs page?
