Good to hear that. Could you update the podling status page to drop
the third mentor?

More generally, I guess we at the IPMC should check whether the
mentors of especially long-running podlings are still actively
involved. I'll follow up about that in a separate email.

I'm looking forward to hearing about the results and your experience
on what worked and what didn't, perhaps in time for your next report
in July. Some of these ideas are quite time-consuming to implement, so
it'll also be useful to know if some where dropped because of
insufficient free cycles.

+1 if that helps get them more involved. Ultimately though you'll want
to have everyone in the community work together on a shared codebase.
