I am choosing not to participate in this vote (my feeling is that in
some cases it will definitely be helpful, in others it likely won't
cause much harm, so treat my silence as +/- 0).

But I am commenting on this thread (changing the subject line en
passant) as I don't believe that one size fits all.  In particular, I
think that ooo has benefited from having multiple active mentors.   I
also believe that while that podling has quite a few challenges, being
able to produce a full and complete report is not one of them.  I also
sense a strong intent to graduate.

I expect this vote to pass, and if it does, I am willing to champion JSPWiki.
