It's not your work, but the sponsoree work. And managing the bug is not
harder for the sponsoree than managing its CGI entry or anything else.

Yes, but most of the sponsor sponsor the same package several times.
You do not.

You're also not looking actively for people that you can sponsor (you're
just waiting to see something in debian-mentors while other may want to
look for sponsoree who have found no sponsors in the past).

Using the BTS is useful for all this.

You don't proove anything neither ...

Use your brain. Give a me simple way to find the complete list of
packages that need to be sponsored with your system (a simple url does
the job for my system) ? Give me a simple way to look the history of
sponsoring of a single package ? Give me a simple way to make sure that
all sponsoree have found a sponsor ? Give me a simple way to know the
list of packages that are currently sponsored ?

All this can be done with the BTS.

But aj is using people like you to tell me "you have no consensus, I
won't create what you want" ... sorry, but by beeing unconstructive
here, you just block my work.
