Subject Re: Podlings should be in charge of their mentors (was: Incubator report sign-off)
Date Mon, 05 Jan 2015 17:27:36 GMT

Podlings are already in charge of their mentors. They recruit them
(actively, even before Incubation) and I’ve never seen a podling
with mentors “forced” on to them.

What new thing is being proposed here?
