Couldn't agree more! I personally can't even start to describe how
valuable Justin's
feedback was and is for the podling communities I help to mentor. In no way my
remark on mentors who don't vote was aimed at Justin -- he's one huge exception
to that rule.

Now with the above out of the way -- for everybody else ;-) I'm
actually curious to run the
analysis I suggested earlier, because with a a few exception like
yourself my gut is telling
me that not many IPMC members vote outside of poldings they mentor.
I may be wrong, but I, myself, certainly fit in that profile.


P.S. And to be clear, for podlings with 3+ mentors relying on mentors
to get those votes
may be much more reasonable anyway. Perhaps that's the commitment expectations
that would be useful to make more explicit. It certainly helps a great
deal to get free standing
IPMC votes, but I'd rather have a stronger expectations for mentors.
