Not. But what I'm going to start with is this: reflect
on the Incubator Wiki is the statistics on poddlings
who receive NO mentor sign-off at all.

IOW, if at least one mentor sings -- that's fine.
If none do -- we will start tracking it and will
get to the bottom of it if needed.

Basically, this is only meant to help podlings
who consistently don't get any attention from
*any* of their mentors. Not even from a single
one of them.

We owe it to our podlings. Plain and simple.
This is my job to do everything I can to empower them.
And yes that includes calling out bad mentorship
practices.

Now, as Chris M. pointed out -- his tools provide
a nice complimentary statistics that you're free
to use (or ignore). I, personally, will use them.
But only as a tool to help me better understand
past behavior, not as a hard policy for making
decisions.

Hope this makes things clear

Thanks,
Roman (wearing his VP of Incubator hat)
