I think starting with the mentors is the wisest choice as at that  
point any committers can be brought aboard if deemed fit. So that can  
support both models as all committers can be brought aboard if it  
fits, or over time if more suitable. I was also confused about this  
as I heard one thing from Noel and one thing from Jim, but the  
mentors deciding seems sensible as projects can be dealt with on a  
case by case basis. I don't believe committers should automatically  
be made (P)PMC members as to me it's a different level of  
understanding and commitment.
