Sorry of that tripped you up. I have been thinking that responses to
RFS emails aren't terribly useful if the sponsored upload occurs
directly - meaning at the same time that the [SPONSORED] email would be
sent - given that most (all?) of the folks who can sponsor uploads are
also members of Java team and will be copied on the email that goes out
to pkg-java-maintainers. If it's going to take some time to sponsor an
upload, then I think an "ITS" response is appropriate.
However, maybe skipping the [SPONSORED] email is not conducive for
people who read the Java list via the archives?
