Subject Podlings should be in charge of their mentors (was: Incubator report sign-off)
Date Mon, 05 Jan 2015 17:14:45 GMT

I'm resending Alan's proposal with a new subject as I think it
deserves more attention.

I like it very's a small, reversible step that puts the
burden on podlings and mentors, which are the ones who should be
concerned about podlings going forward.

It's also consistent with podlings having to find mentors to join the
Incubator - they just have to keep on making sure their mentors are
active, or ask for new ones when needed.

As for measuring the mentors activity, I suggest simply adding a
question to the podling reports, "who are your two active mentors and
are you happy with their activity" along with requiring report
sign-off from those two mentors.
