As a subscriber to the debian-med list, I do not share your view of this. I've 
seen requests for sponsorship of such packages, which have generally been 
quickly handled, many times by Andreas. I am definately available to sponsor 
packages for the debian-med list, as are other subscribers. However, I've not 
seen requests that go unanswered, or general calls for more help by the 
existing sponsors.

I therefore do not agree that your example is a valid one - rather, I think 
teams/groups like debian-med are an excellent way to combine work of DD's and 
non-DD's.

So let the list know if you need some uploading done. I'll gladly take my 
share.
