Does that mean that your opinion is that sponsored NMU's should be
forbidden? I would regret that.  It's not bad that someone in the NM
queue also does NMU's to help fixing other packages.  And I don't see a
problem with responsability if the sponsor is aware of that
responsability.  But maybe I'm missing something?
