IIUC this is what ATM we agree upon:

The role of Mentor is a self-selecting title (eg. anyone wishing to 
become a Mentor and has the title to be one as described in our policy 
just adds themselves to the projects/index webpage + the project status 
page and joins the PPMC and dev lists.

This means that we can reasonably be sure that *at least* the Mentors 
that have listed themselves on the projects/index page are actually 
following the respective projects.

This of course does not remove the need to have at least one mentor 
identified in teh project proposal.

This should satisfy all needs, of accountability and of easiness to join.

I should finally add that we have basically agreed also that the PPMC is 
made of all PMC members and all the committers+landing PMC members, but 
that only the mentors must always be subscribed to the ppmc and dev 
mailing lists.
