Sounds like a throwback to the early days of the Incubator when I hear there
was only one Mentor per podling. :)  +1, go ahead!

The podling will probably have a comparatively easy incubation, since several
aspects are already taken care of.  Not having to deal with IP clearance makes
things much simpler.  Depending on how quickly the new community masters the
Apache Way, incubation could be over within a few months.

I don't see any problem with what you've proposed as far as reusing existing
resources.  We might not make such exceptions every time, but they seem fine
in this unusual case.  It's nice that there is minimal impact on Infra.

This seems like an excellent opportunity for people who are less experienced
or perhaps not members of the IPMC yet to try their hand at mentoring.  Given
your expertise and dedication, someone with less experience could offer advice
to the podling and feel confident that you would be there to back them up or
provide subtle correction as necessary.

Be sure to let private@incubator know if anybody shows up to help and deserves
to be nominated for the IPMC. :)
