Asking For Someone to Help Revitalize a Few QoL Add-ons

There are a few add-ons which I've been using for awhile, but, with Legion, have fallen victim to the API changes and are either inaccurate, or completely broken. I'm asking if someone who is competent in Lua can fix these, presumably, small issues with the following add-ons:

!SyLevel
Equipped Average iLvl Tooltip
BGSpy
Mapster (It's up to date with Legion, but missing an old feature)


!SyLevel
Lua File: Too many to link; easier to just download the add-on and look at them.
Link: http://www.wowinterface.com/download...2-SyLevel.html
Issue(s): Reported iLvl of Artifact weapon is a few hundred item levels too high, and dual-weapon Artifacts (main hand and off-hand, or those which are dual-weilded) do not share iLvl correctly.
Error(s): https://pastebin.com/TQDFhcn4 (unsure if related)



Equipped Average iLvl Tooltip
Lua File:https://pastebin.com/GxBtYtUb (there is also a Lib folder with, likely, outdated libraries)
Link:http://www.wowinterface.com/download...elTooltip.html
Issue(s): Reported average iLvl is lower than expected. The reported iLvl actually seemed to become more accurate with the release of 7.1, but I believe it is still a few item levels too low.
Error(s): None



BGSpy
Lua File:https://pastebin.com/gnpVYPFk
Link:https://www.wowace.com/addons/bg-spy/
Issue(s): When trying to report the enemy team composition to chat, none of the information is being output. Obviously, the add-on is outdated since it hasn't been updated to work with Demon Hunters, but there could possibly be additional issues which need to be addressed.
Error(s): None



Mapster
Lua File: Too many to link; easier to just download the add-on and look at them.
Link:http://www.wowinterface.com/download...6-Mapster.html
Issue(s): The borderless option of the smaller-scale world map has since disappeared with the release of Legion. I've posted in the comments section of the add-on, but the author does not look to be responding to comments either on this site, or on Curse about the missing option.

Mapster's 1.7.0 release has "Note: due to changes to the World Map, some functionality of Mapster has been removed," but with no reply from the author I was hoping someone could take a look at the code to see if this is something which can be brought back. (Example)
Error(s): None



I do apologize if it seems like I'm asking a lot, but I was hoping that these were some smaller (and easier) fixes, so I figured there was no harm in simply asking. Any fixes certainly don't have to be "release ready," by any means, and I'm okay with simply editing a Lua file to make a change in order to fix something. Thanks!

You can replace !SyLevel with EquipSee. That addon also overlays your saved equipment sets in your bags.

SyLevel has been pretty much abandoned but give itemleveldisplay a try

For item level tooltips this is about the only accurate one right now

Wow... now I feel kinda dumb. I thought I was searching for alternatives, but I guess not well enough. Thanks.
