Not reviewing reports
Not reviewing releases
Not responding to PPMC requests in a timely manner

I assume that you speak of ASF members.  The fact that they are members has already vetted
them.  There's no need to go through the trial mentor period.

Inactive mentors are moved to emeritus.

Emeritus mentors merely need to ask to be reinstated, after reaffirm that they will perform
their duties as out lined in a clearly defined document.

Since mentors are IPMC members and can be trusted, I doubt that we will have chronic re-enrollment
of ejected mentors.
