... which highlights the fact that we need one more mentor for the
project. Tommaso and I are currently more or less actively mentoring
the project, while Gianugo doesn't seem to have enough spare cycles.
Thus one extra pair of eyes would be great.

The project itself is on a pretty good track. They've done a great
work navigating some trickier licensing issues, and the community is
following the Apache Way. The main trouble so far has been that the
development efforts were for a long while carried almost
single-handedly by Karl Wright, who's still by far the most active
committer. But this diversity issue has recently been quickly solving
itself with new committers becoming more active and new contributors
showing up with patches. At this rate I believe the project should be
ready to graduate within months.

Extra mentor help would be appreciated not just in reviewing releases
but also in helping make the transition to a more diverse community as
smooth as possible (see the private list for a recent discussion on a
related topic).

Anyone ready to volunteer?
