+        Unfortunately, the Debian Developers in the Debian GIS team are very 
busy. Therefore,
+        if your package requires sponsorship, you will need to follow
+        the normal Debian process and file a Request For Sponsorship (RFS) 
bug. The Debian
+        Mentors website is the best place to upload your package to attract 
sponsors, and a
+        template for your RFS bug is automatically produced:
+        <ulink url="";>Debian 
+      </para>
+      <para>
+        The RFS bug should also be copied to the
+        <ulink url="";>Debian GIS 
Developers Mailing List</ulink>.
+        The best way to do this is to use the X-Debbugs-CC header so that the 
bug number is
+        included in the subject of the email to the list. Add 
+        to your message's mail header.

+        As Debian GIS is a Pure Blend, a good way to get sponsorship is to use 
Andreas Tille's
+        <ulink url="";>Sponsoring 
of Blends</ulink> initiative.
+        Andreas's conditions for sponsorship are listed on that website.
