Interesting. I thought people were obliged to submit _new_ packages to
request sponsorship, and to be honest, I have always found unfortunate that
people like Nathanael would'd want to help co-maintain an existing package
would be left out of the door just because they wouldn't be interested in
submitting a new package.

Out of curiosity, could you point me to a reference documentation that
explains the process to sponsor a co-maintainer who is not a fedora
packager already ?

The only link I was aware of was this one:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/Join#Make_a_Package, where
it's stated:
"You should make sure that it is a new package. "
