That problem is indeed pretty serious and also pretty chronic.

As for the metric -- I really think that using mentor turnout on release
voting threads will serve us well.

Big +1 on the above. Perhaps if we:
   1. get a clear indication on release vote turnout (as part of
Incubator report)
   2. add to it the sign-off turnout

We can start at least nagging unresponsive mentors to begin
with and if behaviour doesn't improve -- suggest that podlings
start looking for a replacement.
