It also helps if a podling's PMC consists only of 3 or 4 'merited'
contributors, to make the voting easier. While we frown upon PMC's
with 3 members, I think 4 is rather common. Having Mentors step in to
help voting (real life also happens when you have graduated) is a good

While Niclas is right that a Mentor typically hasn't got code merit,
it is the interests of the Foundation that should be guarded—the
podling has to be able to function after graduation, and I also think
that having a Mentor as a PMC member provides that extra weight.
