[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: devscripts
Severity: wishlist

It would be nice to have a sponsor-alert/mentors-alert script that
sponsors could run on their machines that would alert them of packages
that need sponsoring. The script would download the Sources file from and correlate installed binary packages against
source packages on mentors. Currently mentors doesn't export
needs-sponsor/doesn't-need-sponsor information into the Sources.gz
files, but that could be changed when debexpo is finally deployed.
