Agreed, since there is a bit of a commitment on the sponsor's part to
help coach the new committer in the early days (most new committers
don't need much coaching, but it's still good practice to have a
specific existing committer looking at their work for a while, in
addition to those of us that just try to review everything that goes by
on the checkin list).
