a single mentor who was willing to put his/her head on the block. This individual would take
full responsibility for rapid turnaround on all items needing mentor feedback. However, the
team had already discussed the proposal with a number of other people. As a result they feel
that 3 mentors is appropriate, respecting both IPMC traditions and those already advising
the community. Hence we have three mentors. We are not seeking more.

This isn't about "seeking more" - literally a perfectly qualified
[potential] mentor fell in your lap.  Do what you want, this just
feels incredibly counter-cultural to me - that is, to actively turn
away an eminently qualified volunteer.  I think it's both unwise in
this specific instance and a poor example to hint that its
acceptable/desirable in general.

Anyway, best wishes to Fineract...


** Just to be clear, I'm well aware that the other three mentors are
rock solid as well:)
