I can currently sponsor and as a member of the games SIG I concider
myself a good sponsor candidate for this person, seeing how he has
chosen a game as his first package.

Judging from the quick response during the review and the fact that he
has had IRC contact with the reviewer which is described as positive by
the reviewer (Andreas Thienemann), and because the initial package was
of ok quality (only minor changes needed) and the few issues left were
fixed without the packager needing any handholding. I concider the
packager (Hugo Cisneiros (hugo devin com br)) ready for sponsoring. I'm
however new to the whole sponsoring business, is the fact that I believe
him to be ready good enough? Are my standards high enough or am I to
easy with trusting someone?
