I've called for this to be something that is done on an ongoing basis, by a neutral third party (perhaps Linux Foundation are the umbrella organization). Not just assembly scanning to find upstreams that haven't moved over to generic functions, but overall "adult supervision" of the package set, looking for very outdated packages, assembly code that needs fixing, security issues that are lying in wait, all of that.
