Yes. What you can expect from the ASF (the project mentors, actually),
on top of logistics and legal, is pull, not push. Ask questions, get
answers. Mentors' mileage may vary, but we are here to steward and
advise, not to have a (pro)active role. Unless we want, as volunteers,
do so.

That's a realistic expectation. Now, if you want to get more, you
might want to show some of you "experience in building open source
communities" and steer clear from bossing us.
