The first idea was that everything was in a single place: it forces
original devs to complete the possible new deps in the Dockerfile and ease
CI by having everything grouped.
I agree that the situation is not optimal nowadays, mainly because the size
of the image has grown a lot due to dependencies used only for testing

There are quite some people doing an amazing job on triaging and most of
the time the involved devs are quite willing to discuss.
Please give a try.

All this work has been done on a voluntary basis and is really hard to keep
up to date.
Any improvment is more than welcome.
If github is really not your cup of tea, I guess we can also accept patches
by emails (gentle poke, sorry)

More generally, I don't think people in the community is against
progressive changes. It's just way more motivating to turn the sentences in
a positive manner, and to try to drive the changes.

Best wishes,
