  First a clarification- as provisional constructs of the Incubator PMC, podlings have no
official standing in the corporation known as The Apache Software Foundation.  So technically,
it is a farce to claim that podlings have any formal rights whatsoever. What we write about
here are promises and covenants the Incubator PMC will make a good-faith effort to honor.
  
- 1. First, podlings have a right to expect active participation and guidance from their mentors.
 That typically includes participation in release votes, discussions and votes on new personnel,
and signing off on a podling's quarterly reports.

- 2. Mentoring is done solely for the podling's benefit, and as such podlings have the right
to fire mentors for any reason by a majority consensus vote on their private list.  Just don't
be denigrating about it, since mentors are always volunteers and not paid staff.

- 3. Podlings who find themselves in need of additional mentors have the right to ask general@incubator
for more mentors to volunteer.

of a VOTE thread, especially during releases.  Reminder- release votes are a majority consensus
vote, so seeing a few -1's occasionally is expected and often ignorable by the RM should they
otherwise see a majority of at least 3 binding IPMC votes.

policy/process changes will be passed along by the podling's mentors.
