I chose this list for two reasons:

   1. unnecessary and unwarranted disruption of an incubator project
      was occurring - something I did not want to see continue in
      light of the fact the the issues had nothing to do with the
      project in question

   2. that underlying this disruption - incubator policies related
      to the nomination of named mentors is IMO potential the
      root issue here

I think that the first issue can be resolved (possible through 
arbitration or directly by the initiating party). Even so, the second 
issue remains and is a subject that could be reviewed within this forum 
and potential resolved for the benefit of subsequent incubator projects.

For now I aiming to resolve the first item, following which I (or 
possibly someone else with interested in improving policy here at 
Apache) can provide a more complete summation.

My apologies to everyone for what I hope will be a temporary disruption 
and earnestly hope that a rapid resolution can be achieved.
