That's what I was implying.

I honestly think its time for us to consider being more board like
around here at
IPMC. May be not exactly as strict as the board, but moving in that direction.

After all, being a podling means being TLP-on-training-wheels. That's the whole

mentors are not active -- you've got to raise hell around here on general@
before its too late.
