Oh, this is great! :-)

The only one thing I felt something out of joint is
usage of the term, "Shepherd".

In the *real* business world, the role of "Shepherd" would
be called as the role of "Mentor".

The word "Mentor" was (originally) derived from Greek Myth
(Mentor was a good teacher of Odysseus' children), however,
it is used to indicate "Good Teacher", "Precursor", "Senior"
, "Mental Supporter" etc.

I prefer to use this term, "Mentor".
e.g. the ASF mentoring member
