If the problem of over zealous mentors exists it is the same as now if
not worse now isnt it as poddlings have the mentors plus anyone who
happens to be about on general@?

Poor mentors maybe an issue but as there would still be notification
to general@ i expect there would be close scrutiny of the release
votes. Also, would the suggestion of holding the first poddling
release on general@ mitigate this issue at all?
