Thank you, I noticed everything is already in unstable!

Sorry for having got that wrong again. I mis-interpreted your last mail,
thinking that CC'ing the ML would cause the control server to
automatically CC it for any status change. I'll manually add the
X-Debbugs-CC field to my RFS message next time, though.

Thanks for pointing me there! Sounds like I really should give that a
try. However, if I get this right, I'd still need to seek sponsorship
for new packages, right?

Kind regards
