Its not so easy to recruit mentors. Not for all projects.

Yes, actually very sad.

These projects have less than 3 mentors and cannot release a component
without the IPMC-cloud:

Many others "just" have three. Hopefully non of the mentors is on
holidays when the release comes out.

i watch a couple of projects and saw a lot of the mentors listed on
status pages are simply not present. Even when a project "recruits a
new mentor" it doesn't mean it can make a release with mentor-votes.

I remember Bloodhound, JSPWiki, Deltacloud had problems to get
necessary votes. Onami parent pom did take a while too. I think there
were many others too.
