We have quite a number of "aged podlings" with no activity and AWOL
mentors.  I don't want to forget about that.  I continue to want to
focus on that.  Not on tossing, or allowing to continue indefinitely,
or graduating prematurely.  Instead I want to verify that the people
who signed on as mentors, presumably in good faith at that time, are
still on board.

You want to see if people will agree to sign a blank check?  My
suggestion is that you present a more concrete proposal than "more
autonomy" if you want people to agree to it.

If the net result is that "aged podlings" can live comfortably in the
incubator indefinitely, then this is not a proposal that I can
