Please if you do [1] then also include the link in the email ;-)

I can look and review, and even sponsor, but I am not overly happy
with sponsoring C programs, esp not gtk since I have no experience

Anyway, please post it here, too, or even better also directly to me.

I think you should ask on both sides, it is not that important from where
the sponsor comes, but that he takes a look at the package.

The package should in any way not be in any of the two categories, but
somewhere like other editors.

BTW, do you have good connections with the authors (upstream)? They
should implement synctex better sooner than later. There is texworks
in Debian that shows how to do it ... ;-)

To avert the horrors of corrievorrie (q.v.) corriecravie is usually
employed. This is the cowardly but highly skilled process by which
both protagonists continue to approach while keeping up the pretence
that they haven't noticed each other - by staring furiously at their
feet, grimacing into a notebook, or studying the walls closely as if
in a mood of deep irritation.
