Mentoring an ASF project, formally, requires you to have an ASF commit bit on the project you
are mentoring for. However, the act of mentoring is a community effort. Engage with your project
community offering your assistance and asking for someone to work with you as the named mentor.
If you can find such a person then you are good to go.

 Subject: ASF GSoC mentor eligibility

I'm a community member and active contributor of an Apache project and I'd like to volunteer
to be a GSoC mentor this year. However, I'm not currently an ASF committer or member.

I'd like to clarify if GSoC mentoring is strictly restricted to ASF committers or can non-committers
also volunteer to be mentors or co-mentors?

ps: I'm sending to this list as I didn't find a clear answer on
