Ideally each podling should have at least three active mentors who can
make sure that the required threshold of at least three PMC votes for
a release is reached.

If that's not the case (as it sounds like), there are a few options:

* Ask help from other IPMC members to review the particular release
candidate. If you're otherwise doing fine, this should be an OK
workaround until you graduate.

* Find one or more new mentors to replace inactive ones. Based on past
experience this can be a bit difficult, but definitely worth a try.

* If the above solutions fail, i.e. the Incubator PMC is unable to
provide the help and oversight you deserve, we can also promote
deserving PPMC members to the IPMC so that they have binding vote on
things like releases. This works, but since that's more or less
equivalent to saying that at least a part of the PPMC is already able
to oversee itself, so one could well argue that a better solution
would be to simply let the podling graduate.

None of these solutions are really ideal, which is why I'm really
hoping to find better ways for us to proactively identify and find
solutions  to cases where a podling no longer has enough active
mentors. Unfortunately that won't help with the pressing matter of
your release vote.

Any IPMC members around who'd be willing to lend Mesos a hand and
review this release candidate? Unless anyone beats me to it (please
do! :-), I'll take care of it later in the weekend.
