The BTS is to keep track of who request uploads of each package. A mail
is so easily forgotten in debian-mentors ... and the web archive of the
list is really not useful at all.
The BTS would give a list of sponsored packages and all the information
associated to it (url, sponsoree name, sponsor name, last activity...)
If the bug is marked "fixed", then the package is regularly sponsored
by the same maintainer. Otherwise, the package is not. And someone can
step to be that regular sponsor ...
In the case where a package doesn't have a regular sponsor, the sponsoree could
request a single upload with the help tag.
Also, if you realize a bit, mailing the BTS means mailing debian-mentors
as a side effect since debian-mentors is the maintainer of the
sponsorship entry. We have the best of both world.
Tell me what you don't undertstand in this explanation. Tell me why it
would be worse than the current situation.
