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 <iwamatsu@debian.org>
1.3.2-1 to unstable: Nobuhiro Iwamatsu <iwamatsu@debian.org>
1.3.0-1 to unstable: Nobuhiro Iwamatsu <iwamatsu@debian.org>

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.
