Does this need to be called out explicitly? I don't think so.

Also, it seems to me that any Incubator PMC member who has joined
a PPMC list is already acting in the role of "Mentor"? Now that we
have PPMCs, we don't need to have an explicit role of "Mentor"
anymore. Can we get rid of these complicated rules and roles and
terms now that we have a PPMC?

Yeah, whatever the PPMC wants to do to write up the report is fine,
as long as they send it over to us (the Incubator PMC) when it's done.
