+1 This is exactly what I have been proposing the incubator do for a very
long time. In fact I set the precedent by having two podling committers
voted onto the IPMC as an experiment.

That experiment proved very successful (both helped with other podlings and
both are now Members of the foundation).

That successful experiment should become part of the incubation process.


PS and yes I do see the need for me, as a mentor, of Alura to make this
happen. I did discuss the projects strategy with project members a week
ago. Not found the time to follow up yet but I would suggest highlighting
individuals in a negative rather than positive light is not the way to
encourage volunteers to find time
