Would it be appropriate to fix the ~700 low-hanbging fruit issues that
are identified by:

  guix lint --checkers=description,synopsis

It is not the most exciting work technically, but it is relatively easy,
and low risk, maybe the worst it does is put a bit more work on

Maybe there are also other low hanging fruit guix lint knows about that
would not be particularly disruptive?

It is not particularly urgent for a release, per se, but I suspect it
will just grow and grow without some sort of cycle to address such
trivial issues... and doing such cleanup before making a release would
aim for a higher standard of craftspersonship. :)

I can maybe try to help stir up a coordinated effort, if folks are
interested in pursuing this line of thinking!

live well,
