Subject RE: The role of a mentor
Date Thu, 12 Apr 2018 17:22:18 GMT
I agree with the observations and clarifications to my post.

I should perhaps have prefaced my opinion with "If I agree to mentor I assume I will [read
everything] for the first x months and then monitor for problems after that"

This is why I've not mentored a project for some time. It *is* very time consuming if we are
to do it right, especially at the start.

I try to be more aware early on and then ease up later after things start moving smoothly.

I still watch a lot, however.
