Bug#906536: Sponsor for my package "cavestory-nx"

Hi Phil,

I would like the section of this game to be "contrib/games",
but because of this problem I left it as a "non-free/games".

Removed this second paragraph from the copyright.

Many thanks for the tip, and modified according to the instructions.

I'm sorry for my mistakes made with "sponsorship-requests",
in the next packages I'll be more careful. :(

Closed 903872 & 905984 in d/changelog.
