Bug#513820: Proposal for a new 'needsponsor' tag

Package: debbugs
Version: 2.4.1
Severity: wishlist


  While browsing for RC bugs to fix, I found that it is not easy to
find bugs which are fixed by the maintainer but in need of a
sponsor. What do you think about implementing a 'needsponsor' tag that
would precisely mean that ?

  It could be a simple tag, or even a more complex object like the
'forwarded' system, where the maintainer could enter an URL for the
fixedpackage's .dsc file (for instance on mentors).

  How do you like that ?



PS: I quickly browsed over bugs of debbugs and bugs.debian.org and I
couldn't find any title related to sponsor. I hope I didn't miss something.
