In this case...

The only problem that would need an ombudsmen is ISSUE 01 (inactive
mentors). Mentors should always know where to go to solve a problem (we
have specialist committees for pretty much every issue that will arise). If
mentors are inactive then ISSUE 01 is in play.

The current place to go is the IPMC. At this point ISSUE 03 may well come
into play.

The idea of an Ombudsman overlaps with my earlier proposal for a
psuedo-board in the IPMC. Its also similar to both suggested solutions for
ISSUE 03 in the wiki.

For these reasons I suggest the Ombudsmen proposal has merit.

I also suggest that this ombudsmen could be the organisation responsible
for acting if a podling (or a pTLP, if the experiment shows merit in this
model) is failing.

As always the details needs to be ironed out but since the proposal
directly addresses ISSUE 03 I would like to see it explored. I especially
like that it complements my pTLP experiment which is designed to address
ISSUE 01 (but clearly your proposal is worth exploring even without that
potential advantage).
