Proposing new committers would typically lie within a PPMC. However,
accepting them is the job of the Incubator PMC. If a podling does not
have enough committers to vote in a new committer, all that is needed is
three +1 votes from IPMC members, and someone is in. Having said that,
getting three IPMC members to the position where they can vote might not
be easy.

For a small project, of one or two committers, I'd say expecting three
mentors is serious overkill. One would be enough, at least to get the
podling restarted.
