I don't think so. The process of sponsor selection is mostly ad-hoc.
It is FESCo choice, in the end, and technical skill doesn't have to
be the sole motivation of FESCo:

Quoting:

  When someone within the project has developed a "good reputation" 
  (and this is admittedly a somewhat fuzzy definition!) then someone 
  else will generally nominate them for sponsor status.
  ....
  A discussion and vote will then occur during the next Fedora 
  Engineering Steering Committee meeting.
