We've had this debate about committer cattle call additions many
times. The position that Todd is taking is completely reasonable. The
expectation that just about anybody can join a project during the
proposal phase is messed up and I wish that tradition had never caught
on. Instead, there ought to be an "Interested Party" section in the
proposal template where people can express interest and "subscribe to
your newsletter".

I agree that this prospective podling is going to have a lot of work
to do, and I think that a more diverse Mentor corps is badly needed.
But those are separate issues.
