Thanks, this confirm what I misunderstood.
I was thinking that message about people looking for sponsor we're
people asking for help to maintain a package and willing to support the
update of packages. I interpreted this as "I am looking for someone to
sponsor this package. Sponsoring in the term of helping, giving resources".
Now I get it !
Thanks, I've read the link you sent me and it was very useful.
