If the accountable person fails, what can we do? Nothing.

Our goal is not to have one person accountable, as we are all 
"accountable" as PMC members, but to have more eyes and hands working on 
it that are also on our PMC.

As for the idea that more people makes things less accountable, it's 
vice versa at Apache. Put more committers on a project, and you will 
have more that will eventually do.

All have to do the same thing, so none of them should assume that 
someone else is looking over it. Things are done on mailing lists, and 
if things do not progress, it's evident enough IMO.

It does, as these Mentors would all be on the Incubator PMC, and all 
participate as Mentors in full.
