Please, move this one to Pros.

IMNSHO the use of a common tool to do something as managing sponsors
should be as an advantage. Common procedures simplify the tasks we do in
Debian:

* i found a bug -> i open a bug report
* the bug is fixed/closed -> i close the bug report in the changelog
  (closes #XX)

* i need a sponsor -> i open a bug report
* i found a sponsor -> changelog (closes #XX)

sound good enough for me...
