Subject Re: The role of a mentor
Date Tue, 03 Apr 2018 05:31:24 GMT
Hi John,

IMHO, a mentor is not necessary involved in the project technics/codebase (it's
actually a bonus).

As a mentor, I'm focusing:
1. Insure of the legal aspect of the project (ICLA/CCLA, SGA, ...)
2. Help around infra and release preparation according to Apache rules
3. Help to promote the project and build communities around
4. See if there's potential interaction with other podlings and existing TLPs
5. Help to go to graduation (following the graduation checklist)
6. (optional) Help on the contribution (codebase, website, ...)

My $0.01
