Subject Re: Mentors heartbeat

Everyone who has ever mentored anything is a member of this PMC,
except for those who have actually chosen to depart.

In addition, we have PMC members who specialize in things like NOTICE
files, but don't choose to mentor individual projects.

In general, there is a mentor shortage. If you have a strong mental
stomach, read archives going back a few years, and you can see some
rather, ahem, spirited debates as to whether the entire iPMC/mentor
model is hopelessly broken and should be trashed. Of late, talented
PMC chairs have managed to steer the boat away from those rocks, but
the mentor shortage is never completely gone.

json === yaml, and anyone could edit yaml.
