Sponsorship and provenpackager request - mmaslano

Provenpackager approved, sponsorship declined based on feedback from the existing sponsors. There was some concern about being able to guide the sponsoree in the best choices in packaging and reviewing. However, we would be willing to entertain another request in a period of a month or two.

This request was declined on the basis that the reasons presented for becoming a sponsor was to avoid work in the event of some future reseed of provenpackager, not the desire to assist and teach anybody in becoming a Fedora packager. As there is no such reseed now planned or even likely, this request made very little sense.
