Exactly. Same here. Isn't there a gnome team? That should become more
active in sponsoring then.
They probably have enough packages to upload and bugs to triage, best
not overload them more.
Let's ask them what they think, rather than guessing.
People interested in GNOME packaging, I suggest you join
http://lists.debian.org/debian-gtk-gnome/ and ask them if they'd be
interested in sponsoring GNOME packages.
Perhaps the right answer is, "No new GNOME packages in Debian unless the
maintainer does some work on existing GNOME packages, like bug triage."
Perhaps they actually want to sponsor lots of packages. I have no idea.
Let's find out!
I won't start the conversation; someone with a GNOME package to sponsor
should go and see what the team says. (-: I'll join the list right now;
I'll watch there, and be friendly and supportive if necessary.
