It will make the next Council term more interesting, won't it? ;-)

I think it might be good to have a team of people who perform some of
those tasks. For example, a lot of the tools could be improved (how Last
Calls are announced, how certain web pages are constructed, etc.). Right
now those are all homegrown scripts that I've written over the years. I
need to write up a list of the things I do so that we can figure out
what others can do better than I can.
