Make drupal auto update

This is an out of the box idea. While readingm please forget technical difficulties. Look at other software: Firefox/chrome/mobile apps. They all auto update.

core office hours, plus pro

The burgeoning issue queues are a big drag on the velocity of the core development. Significantly increased community participation is the most important part of the solution.

Module implementation difficulty level filter

Allow people to filter the module list for an implementation difficulty level. That way, non-technical people with a Drupal site and no time / interest in the technical parts can filter for "plug'n play" modules, while others might also like to have "some configuration involved" up to people who don't mind "API only" modules.
