I was imagining a bunch of unknown people coming up with a vague idea
for a project, and no code...to that would seem too risky to warrant
dedicating resources to a podling.

Now, if mentors were enthusiastic about that podling, why not...that's
kind of a rethorical question anyway, as in the present case Noah
indicates that there is a group of experienced people.

Let's see their proposal then, but from what I've seen in this thread
I'm positive about it.
