The docs still need revising.

The Champion role really ends when the project is accepted for Incubation.
If a champion is also going to be a Mentor, that's a separate role.

If the project is sponsored by another PMC, they must line up Mentors first,
or we are going to bounce the project as being out of conformance with
Incubation requirements.  If the Incubator PMC sponsors the project, there
must be Mentors lined up before we vote for it.  We are not in the business
of providing or "assigning" Mentors.  Having Mentors serves a number of
legal and structural purposes, and effectively limits the Incubator.  If
there isn't sufficient interest that we have active Mentors participating,
we cannot incubate the project.  Simple as that.

In any event, I believe that I have heard that J. Aaron Farr and David are
keen to act as Mentors.  Yoav is willing, but not overly keen.  Anyone else?
I have noticed interest amongst other Members.
