1 responsible mentor doesn't exclude 3 or more IPMC members helping
out, but if everyone is supposed to do it, it will happen that no one
feel enough obligated to do so. Why do we have a PMC Chair? Why not 3?
There is purpose of elevated responsibility, it works outside ASF and
I am confident it will work here too.

It is also helpful to have three mentors who are on the IPMC since it makes it easier to get
a release vote to pass if all 3 mentors are active.
