No, from my point of view it is not enough. I have no way to
keep track of the sponsorship work.
I have a recent case of someone who NMU'ed packages of someone
I do sponsor but I wasn't aware of that.
I would like an entry point for communicating with the sponsoree
so I can get informed about such events.
The BTS plus the PTS provide what I need currently.
So, I want the sponsorship managed through the BTS.
