How to become someone's sponsor when they are already sponsored
 
Jim Meyering (FAS username: meyering) was sponsored by Warren Togami.
It seems that Jim can no longer set the fedora-review flag on packages
that he's reviewed, and this may be connected with Warren leaving Red
Hat for new pastures yesterday. In any case I've agreed with Jim that
I'll become his sponsor.

*However* there is a problem ... I can see no way to change the
sponsor of an existing packager in FAS.

How do we go about this?

Rich.

Thanks Rich,

Background details: this arose because I have reviewed and just
tried to set "fedora-review = +" on this RR:

http://bugzilla.redhat.com/570627

and now all I get is the big red failure notice:

You tried to grant fedora-review. Only a user with the required
permissions may make this change.

Those 2 events shouldn't be connected. The inability to set flags in
bugzilla is usually caused by using an email as login in bugzilla that's
not registered in FAS.

Hi Dan,

Thanks for the quick reply.
I've just changed my email in FAS to match the one in bugzilla,
confirmed it, then tried to set the flag again. Same failure.

FYI, I set it to fedora-review = "?"
last week with no trouble.

It takes some time to get the change propagated into right places.
Please try it later, it should work after say 20 minutes.

My recognition is that if you change your email in FAS it may take
about an hour or so for RH bugzilla database to recognize it.

Confirmed.
Waiting solved the problem.
I didn't time it carefully, but it felt like
more than 30 minutes, and perhaps an hour.
