QA already has enough open tasks that are done by the QA Team, so adding
another task like sponsoring people is in my opinion not acceptable. And
I would normally say that the maintainership of the orphaned packages
isn't also a task for a QA Team, but more a task for a separate Team.
The QA Team does focus more on having our packages in a good shape and
be bugfree, taking care of maintainers that are MIA and so on. So there
are enough tasks that the QA Team is already taking care of. I would
vote for creating then a new Sponsors Team, that consists of sponsor,
who will take care of this packages.
