Did you ask your previous sponsor first? When I see a package I
sponsored on mentors again - I ignore it (if sponsoree is not happy with
my "service", he/she is free to try someone else after all).
When I already sponsored a package, it's easier to sponsor next upload
(as I can assume I checked everything previously and just check the
debdiff output¹ next time)
