I realize that it's much easier to criticize a small body of people vs.
the whole Fedora community, but this is hardly FESCo's fault.  We have a
standing item in the meeting to discuss and vote on sponsors.  We
literally have not received any nominations in quite a while.

Just as FESCo can't arbitrate disputes it doesn't know about, it can't
approve sponsor nominations that don't exist.
