I take an oblique offense to this statement.  It is the responsibility of the project's community
to get things off the ground.  Mentors can make the extra effort, to be sure.  But we have
to be careful about becoming a crutch.

Sometimes bad things happen to good projects.  Eric has been heroic in trying to keep things
afloat but sometimes that dog won't hunt.  

We as a IPMC have to be prepared for the time when a podling just won't get off the ground
and everyone but a lone developer sees it.
