You mean popular within the pool of mentors (IPMC), the project can still
be popular on several other scales.

I might lack experience, but why do more active mentors guarantee that the
podling will be a better TLP ?

We try to solve the problem of mentors not being active but adding more
volume. I don't believe that is the right cure.

I do agree with bernard that it is the podling that should ask for
help....but the IPMC should solve it.,
