I view the proposal accepting the projects with the listed mentors as
delegating the oversight to the mentors.  So, I don't know if it
should be required that you must get three IPMC members to vote on
every little thing a podling does.  I think it tends to let projects
think that people who don't contribute anything deserve merit and have
rights to tell them what to do.  I'm not sure that sets an appropriate

Let me put it another way: if the IPMC accepts a proposal with one
mentor, then I'm fine with that one mentor acting on behalf of the
IPMC without the need to constantly go back to the IPMC for approval.
