Precisely. While it's good to have good personal relationships and good
to have the feeling that you're getting on well with some members of the
team, we need to encourage new contributors very early to make use of
the team processes we have. 

Sponsors can always be away, on holidays or just too busy to take care
of you - there's no need to be blocked on that. Also it's better to
learn from several people and not only one.

I think that adding a note to
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MOTU/Documentation/Wishlist is a good start

Have a nice day,
