correct and by design.  part of the purpose of the incubator is to
make sure new projects fit into our technical and cultural framework.
assigning the mentoring process to a member, who has become a member
by virtue of demonstrating knowledge of the framework, makes sense.
allowing j random contributor who may or may not have a clear picture
to mentor does *not* make sense, at least not to me.

why?  the foundation is and is owned by the members, not by the
non-members.  the members have a perfectly legitimate right to
determine what will and will not become part of the foundation.
