I've noticed some sponsorship entries getting lost due to the "grabbing"
of review slots as I described, so I've gone ahead to implement

I've put a trivial MP up here:

Once that lands, I'll change the bot to use ~ubuntu-sponsors-reporter
instead of ~ubuntu-sponsors.

I don't think this will change anything in practice for anyone except to
solve this grabbing problem. This new team is only for automation to
use; nobody need use it directly or change what they're doing already in
any way.

Bryce mentioned the difficulty of removing the slot. Unfortunately
there's no UI for this, but I did confirm today that it can be done by
API. I wrote a quick script so that we can do it easily if needed:

Example of use:

$ python3 ubuntu-sponsors-reporter <mp-url>

(for convenience, the URL is the one you see in your browser)

I don't know who has permission to do this. Is it because I currently
have some more permission over git-ubuntu repositories? Feedback
appreciated. If it turns out that we need to give more people access to
do this, perhaps we can arrange for a bot to watch for instructions in
the MP or something similar.
