Absolutely.  I think we've come a long way on the number of sponsors,
and with fewer groups, it will be a lot better.  The trick now is to
remember over the longer term that we need to keep the sponsor pool

Right now I don't think it will be hard.  The recent group of new
contributors have been astonishing, and it is easy to see them quickly
becoming more integrated.  Next release it will be harder to remember,
and the release after that ...
