	I agree that we definitely need an official protocol/place for
filing Request for Sponsors (RFS) and to avoid unnecessary
cross-posting. I suggest that there also needs to be clear guidelines
as to what idle period would be long enough to warrant a repeat or
escalation of the RFS. Should urgent uploads also follow the exact
same procedure?
	 Do you think that the exposure and number of developers
subscribed to -mentors is sufficient enough to provide regular and
swift responses?  Mentors is described [1] as "Helping newbie
developers" and some maintainers who have had their packages regularly
sponsored previously have never actually had a 'mentor' as such
assigned to them. Should there be another list for RFS similar in
nature to the WNPP list if you feel -devel should be avoided totally?
