Seen from the POW of one who is new around here, it seems a bit like having
a title for the sake of a title.

I understand and value the functions of both "champion" and "mentor" and of
course also the "iPMC". But I fail to see the big difference between being
an official shepherd, and just helping a project.

I am sure I overlooked some of the finer differences, or maybe the titles
have just grown out of history.

I am willing to learn !
