Yes. I did. Don't get me wrong, I do not want to blame my former
sponsor(s) as they may have reasons for being unable to help me and I
was happy I found someone helping me at all (that's not self-evident at
all, if you skip through d-mentors).
In fact I was speaking about my situation to several people by now and I
told all of them "thanks for your interest, but let's speak with my
former sponsor(s) first".

I know and I provided everyone willing to sponsor me a comprehensive
change log where I explain what I did and why, altogether with a diff
outlining all changes when compared to the previous version.
Moreover I don't want to attract you to my particular case, that's off
topic here and I hope Asheesh will help me soon there. All I wanted is
to outline, the current procedure seems not to work that good in
with kind regards,
