Just FYI, this is a minority point of view, the (big) majority of DD's
seem to agree that sponsoring *is* a good thing, and it's even a
requirement to have a sponsored package in the archive while progressing
Beauxir5, you are free to seek out whatever sponsor you like, you are
not forced to take the first offer (which isn't a sponsorship offer
anyway, just a request for adoption).
