I am leaving fedora (though not EPEL), and since I have been quite
vocal in the last months, I thought it would deserve some explanation.
All that follows is highly subjective, and I don't think it
should lead to much discussion, and since it is very subjective, I
won't give names or facts to prove what I say, these are my feelings.
Just cannot believe in my eyes. Worst news.
My sponsor, please stay. :(
Do we need to work out a sponsorship transfer?  Not sure what the policy
is for this sort of thing.
I think there are a lot of people in this position, e.g. many people (myself included) lost their sponsor when Elliot Lee left.

The real question is: How long do you have to keep any eye on somebody you sponsored? That should get answered before the question "Who takes over the sponsor burden if the sponsor doesn't do it properly or leaves" gets discussed.

The answer to the first question afaics depends on the person that is being sponsored. I for example stopped watching cwickert after just a few weeks or months, as I got the impression that he found its way into the project properly and can work on his own (he was made sponsor a few months later). But other people that are less involved/active I'd say it important to watch them for longer time-frames. But it's IMHO definitely shouldn't be a life-time job IMHO ;-)
