When I was asked to became a mentor, I accepted. That was an obvious
decision. Now, I really do think that having too many mentors is not
necessarily a good idea. I rather prefer having someone like Jim with a
very deep knowledge on how The ASF work, especially for such a project,
with potentially "political" interactions, and more important, a lot of PR
to deal with. NetBeans is not one of the project we see often at Incubator,
I do think it deserves hot guns.

Better have a hard core set of mentors from the beginning than having a
bunch of people that will quit during incubation, IMHO.

Btw, I really do think that adding someone from Infra is mandatory, due to
the high requirement on Infra this project will have.

My 2 cts ;-)
