It should be much easier for developers to contribute code back to inactive or abandoned plugins.

For instance, Inline Google Spreadsheet Viewer is still a perfectly valid plugin, but hasn’t been updated since September 2010, has WP_DEBUG as true at the top of the file, and needs user input sanitization for it to be secure. These things I’ll fix for my own site; there should be an easy way to contribute these fixes back to the community.
