Subject [RT] Multiple Mentors
Date Wed, 12 Nov 2003 09:28:46 GMT

 From the current incubations, it's becoming quite clear IMO that a 
single Mentor is not enough for most, if not all, incubated projects.

As PMCs are composed of more than one member, we need more Mentors or 
each project, so that there should be *at least* one of them active in 
every moment. In the projects where there are more than one Mentor 
already things have been going better in this regard, in fact.

What has been said though is that if more than one have to do something, 
then nobody does it, as they assume others did. From what I see at 
Apache this is generally false, as since all is done on mailing lists, 
it's easy to see if things are being done or not.

What I still don't know is if we need a "chair" Mentor, but since I 
really don't see ATM the real need for it, I would keep it simple and 
deny a different status between Mentors.

In practice, it all boils down just to change our docs to have more than 
one Mentor, and that all project members that abide to the Mentor 
definition should become Mentors.

What do you think?
