I hate to be a stickler here, but the second statement does say that  
"A Mentor is... a permanent member of the [ASF]. I'd like to see  
member capitalized to indicate that it is a "defined term" but to me  
it's clear that the second statement requires that Mentors be Members  
and the first does not.

But I think the main point is that the IPMC needs to decide whether  
all or just at least one Mentor must be a Member.
