My one concern is that at the moment we have a mentor who has been 
officially assigned to assist the project in question, who is a single 
contact for the new developers in the event of issues and who is the 
single person the Incubator PMC can go to to to ask where the project is 
and what is going on.  I.e. a single accountable person.

I have this fear that we are throwing the baby out with the bathwater. 
I have absolutely no problems with the idea that anyone who wants to can 
sit on the PPMC and assist in mentoring (not officially marked as mentor 
unless they want to be), but I believe there should be one officially 
assigned mentor who is responsible for reporting etc.

No different to the chair of a PMC.
