>From that document (redacted for clarity):

 Champion: A Member of the Apache Software Foundation who supports a
           Candidate's application for Incubation and who supports and
           assists the Podling through the Incubation process.

 Mentor:   A Podling has one or more Mentors, one of which MUST be an
           Apache Member. Mentors [actively monitor] the podling, guide
           the podling in the Apache Way, and report its [status.]  All
           Mentors must be members of the Incubator PMC.

Difference?  And note that if the Champion were not an Incubator PMC member,
there would not be a binding vote.

> So what's the exact difference between champion and mentor then?

Champion is someone who helps them get accepted.  After that, everything
expected of the Champion applies to the Mentors.
