I usually don't look in the package itself. I go to the website where it was downloaded to determine if the version I'm moving into or around in the repo has bug fixes, new features, or if the package is actually new to Vector. In that case I just note that it is a new addition.
As for a better forum perhaps the packages forum is a better place. You may have to be a packager for VL to post there though.
As for my time, well I've had a bit to spare the last few days (Memorial Day weekend in the USA). Also I love Vector Linux so I feel it's time well spent.
