My personal take - mentor should be adding their comments as to what was
attempted to get a report, response(s) from the community when requested.
Mentors shouldn't try to submit the report unless they can actively speak
of the developer community from a participant standpoint.

When I look at gossip's commit history [1], it seems like it's just a case
of being a low volume core internal library.  Not very visible, would
probably be fine to graduate as a TLP with minimal PMC, but that assumes
they stay active enough to keep 3 binding votes together and get reports
out quarterly.
