Can we ask that contributors seeking sponsors include in their
mail to request-sponsor either the bug synopsis or at least some
information about what area the bug is in?
Having to have everyone on request-sponsor look up a bug id to
see if it's anything close to what they work on seems like both
a time sink and something that not everyone will do, lowering
the chance of finding a sponsor in a timely fashion.
(And given the influx we're seeing that seems to be linked to
the Sun contest for students in India in which the entry
method is to submit a code change request, this is going to
really slow down looking at all these requests to see which
are for typos in /usr/dict/words, which are for kernel fixes,
and which are for some other consolidation completely.)
