I suspect you will get a better response if you follow the normal RFS
template for mentors. It may seem a pain to you to send in multiple RFS
emails that fully describe each package and give a URL to the .dsc but
it is likely to significantly increase the likelihood of a potential
sponsor actually looking at any of these packages. ChangeLog entries
are of absolutely no use at this stage, what sponsors need is the full
RFS template including the description and a URL to the .dsc. One RFS
per package.

I'm mired in cross-building errors within coreutils at the moment and I
certainly don't have time to go to the website to view these,
especially when I have to manually enter the final part of the URL from
a long email.

Sorry, if I could have seen some description of each package in the RFS
I might have been interested.

I know NM is frustrating but you are likely to be in NM for some
significant period yet if you haven't been assigned an AM. You will
need to request sponsors frequently so it's best to get it right now.
