One *active* mentor is good enough for most podlings, but expecting
the mentor to be always available is not realistic, so having
backup(s) is often needed. That could be IPMC members though, if we
decide to go back to one mentor per podling.

Larger podlings where many new people come into Apache (like
openoffice, flex) are better off with several mentors that can share
the high load that those represent, at least when starting up.
