s/Debian developers/Debian package maintainers/, I agree. That's why I
wouldn't sponsor Kalle Kivimaa's Java packages (I don't know Java), even
though I advocated him as an NM and do sponsor another package of his. I
also won't sponsor packages I have no interest in using myself.

(I may have reached this opinion during my year and a half of being
absent, though.)

That might be because you sent mail to a Debian list, not because of
what you said. :)
