And what about the benefits of controling when the bug is fixed (i.e.,
the sponsor has been accepted by a developer), to have a list of people
requesting an sponsor at a glance, to check the activity of an sponsor,
and probably more benefits i forget?

I requesteed an sponsor using the cgi and eventhough I have found an
sponsor, my entry is still there, and actually no one contacted my by
using the CGI entry.

*following an sponsor: possible problems, possible solutions.
*closing an sponsor when has been done.
*asking for an sponsor by using a common tool: reportbug.
*checking if someone else has requested the sponsor by using a common
 tool: reportbug.
*closing an sponsor bug when sponsored using common tools: closes #.
