I find this to be an interesting tidbit (yeah, I just got back from my long 
trip in Europe...)

How does one know that the Mentor(s) go AWOL??
Since there is no 'heart beat', podlings could tag along quite a while without 
knowing that there is no oversight. Of course this is more prevalent in 
projects with one Mentor than those who has 3, but still...

Should we perhaps require Mentors to ACK ("Yes, this looks accurate.") the 
monthly/quarterly reports, and failure to do so mean the Mentor is AWOL??
