I agree.

Mentors are the first line of support for questions. They read all of the traffic on the dev
and private lists. And yes, they vote on releases, but in practice podlings only have 1 or
2 active mentors. So, podlings need votes IPMC members need to vote. 

Anyone who doesn’t have time to vote on at least 2 release candidates a year should, in
my opinion, resign from the IPMC. I’m sorry, but apathy really pisses me off. It drags us
all down. I’d rather spend time with a few motivated people than a whole load of dead-weights.
