I know the vote is essentially over, but the following thought
occurred to me this morning as I volunteered to support the OfBiz

Currently there's only one mentor, but there can be several champions.
 The mentor has specific oversight responsibilities.  The champions
are also expected to be involved but their specific role is to
demonstrate that the proposal has support within the ASF.

Did we really want to distribute the mentor responsibilities to three
people?  Or was the intent to increase the required show of support?

My impression was that the intent was to show that there is a minimal
level of support among ASF members, not to dilute responsibility.  In
this case, a more accurate process change would be to require (or
recommend) that proposals have three champions, not three mentors.  If
so, we may also need to better define the role of champion.
