    I cannot offer to sponsor, but I have a few comments about the package.
    Your package seems to not be in Debian yet and it doesn't appear to be
    in the NEW queue. Since your 1.0.6-1 upload never made it to Debian, you
    should simply pretend that it never happened, and have a single changelog
    entry like
    cornus (1.0.9-1) experimental; urgency=medium
      * Initial release (Closes: #984757)

    (Note that that bug was automatically closed due to your package not
    being at mentors for a moment; you should probably re-open it or open
    a new RFS.)
    The manual page, package description, and other documentation says that
    this is a file browser for Linux. Does the file manager actually use any
    Linux-specific functionality, or could it in principle be built for
    Debian GNU/kFreeBSD or Debian GNU/Hurd as well? Upstreams often misunderstand
    what constitutes Linux and what merely is part of a Unix-like system.
    Upstream says they require Linux 5.3 or newer. What about this particular
    version is actually required?
    In general, ITP bugs should mention why the package is warranted and what
    gap it fills in Debian. The answer to this question might help you find a
    team to maintain it with. What does Cornus offer that Dolphin doesn't for
    its users?
    Users generally don't care for what language a particular program is written
    in; the mention of C++ should be removed from the package description. Users
    need not understand what it is.
    Your changelog says version 1.0.9, but this doesn't seem to have been
    released or tagged upstream yet. Where did the release come from?
    Rather than making a comment, please respond to me directly at, and I'll be happy to clarify more or review additional
