Subject OpenOffice Proposal: Nominated Mentors

advance if it is out of place for me to be asking this, but I think that 
with a project of this size, complexity, visibility, and shall we say 
drama, we would benefit from having incubation mentors with noted strength 
in these areas.     We currently are listing Jim and Sam as project 
mentors.  This is an excellent start.  But if say, another 2 or so IPMC 
members who have complementary strengths in one or more of  the above 
areas, I'd welcome their assistance.  That would allow us to work some of 
these areas in parallel with each other, and in parallel with other 
incubation tasks, without being too much of an imposition for any single
