Yes, that is true. I thought the point of team maintainence was to do
things as a team, and try and concentrate the skills/interests where
they are required.
If you find a sponsor here then it is great, but I assume that any DD
who is a member of the games team has an interest in games, and
experience with the packaging of them, two things that I assume that an
sponsor will consider when looking at whether to upload a package.
