We sponsors are lazy buggers, and once a package moves out of the top of the
queue^Wstack, it tends to be forgotten, and requires pinging.

Uploads for paho.mqtt.c:
1.3.5-1 to unstable: Nobuhiro Iwamatsu <email@example.com>
1.3.2-1 to unstable: Nobuhiro Iwamatsu <firstname.lastname@example.org>
1.3.0-1 to unstable: Nobuhiro Iwamatsu <email@example.com>
Apparently Iwamatsu-san did not receive the request, or was/is busy.
Asking the same sponsor is good as that person has prior knowledge of
your package, but otherwise a public request is faster.
I've just uploaded 1.3.8-1.
