The Mentor program description I've been editing calls for mentees to
keep track of their code changes. My idea here was to create a MENTOR
project in JIRA, and open a JIRA for each mentee project, and then
connect the commits via FIshEye. I don't know if anyone else likes
this, so you're probably right that this is premature.
