I think you're hunting more than a ghost, because it took me some
time to arrive at my current way of sponsoring. It really doesn't
seem very clear, notes are in three places (policy, developers
reference and mentors FAQ) and there are different opinions about
it. I still don't know if I'm doing it the best way, but it works
I felt your initial suggestion would make my least favourite
way (and one contradicted by the developers-reference) policy.
Maybe if you can find some examples of sponsorship hiccoughs,
it might help inform better suggestions?
