There is one definitive list of sponsor requests:
http://opensolaris.org/os/bug_reports/request_sponsor. Items are put on
the 'awaiting sponsor' list when contributors send email to this mailing
list requesting a sponsor.
So 6605991 is on the 'awaiting sponsor' list because a contributor sent
email to this list requesting a sponsor.
When a request comes through, the 'oss-request' keyword is supposed to
be added to the bug in bugster. But because this is a manual process,
it sometimes gets missed.
