I have no problem with this, I actually believe the old post an
introduction mail to the list stating interest etc was a good idea, but
this is not what is currently advertised in the wiki. As things stand
the procedure advertised to new contributers and those to sponsors
differ, and in my 6 hours being a sponsor experience FE-NEEDSPONSOR
actually helps me to find people who need a sponsor whereas the
currently advertised procedure does not.
