The proposal looks great. And I like that it will allow us to know more,
and in an automated way, about the status of a current sponsorship request.

That way the PTS can provide more precise information instead of just
telling that a package is available on mentors.debian.net.

To better fit the naming of pseudo-packages, we ought to pick
mentors.debian.org but it would be weird if that DNS entry did not exist.

Dear DSA, do you think it's possible to have a CNAME mentors.debian.org
pointing to mentors.debian.net? It's currently not hosted on a .d.o
machine but AIUI the mentors.debian.net admins are interested to move it
to DSA-managed host at some point.
