Mmmm, more mailing lists.  There's a selling point.  ;)

You know, when I mentor a podling, I should't care what the technology is.  (I learned the
hard way about having an interest in the actual technology of the podling and have generated
ill will as a result)

A mentor can tell if a community "gets it" without having to know the technology.  If anything,
mentors who know the technology should not be allowed to mentor that project; an academic
position, to be sure, given the dearth of active mentors.
