Is there some definition of what a "provenpackager role" is supposed to mean and how it is different from a "sponsor role"?

provenpackagers are people who can change all the packages with opened ACLs. Sponsors are the people who can accept new contributors in fedora.

Well, with this definition, "provenpackager" is an acknowledgment of "technical skills", while "sponsors" is a "social/political role".

It also doesn't have any connection to the role "sponsors" once used to have: To guide and educate new-comer packagers.
