Well, I have reasons to think that the BTS would do better than the
current CGI :
- first, it would be directly linked to debian-mentors
- more people know about the BTS
- the interface is mail based
- it is easy to extract a list from the BTS to post
  regular "sponsor wanted" messages
- it's in a .debian.org machine

It's not self-evident.

Because it's so easy to CC a mail to the BTS ?
