If I may give my view of sponsored...

Daniel has been a very good sponsor with me so far, he helped me a lot
to understand many things, he was fast, and was patient enough with my
mistakes. He don't put lot's of emotions on his messages, he just write
what he thinks is good, without any bla bla.

I agree. Daniel is a perfectionist and reliable person. I have learned
a lot when he sponsors me. He doesn't put lots of emotions because as
far as I can see he is a very objective person. I also have to say
that I like when he sponsors me because I can understand and improve a
lot the work that I do in Debian.

In the other hand I don't think he has something to change, I really
do appreciate all the work he does and how he does. He imposes a high
quality standard when he sponsors a package.
