As specified in the proposal, I'm happy to volunteer as a mentor 
(currently a member, haven't officially requested to join IPMC).

This statement struck me as a little odd. While I understand that you 
tried to operate as an open source project, it seems impossible by 
definition to be open source. My biggest concern would just be that you 
are aware that you will have difficulties transitioning to a real open 
codebase and growing a community in the open.

What's the plan to make this a non-private repo?
