Definitely having committers serve as listmods is better than Mentors.

Nobody is moderating messages from subscribers.  The job of
mailing-list moderators is mostly to approve messages from
non-subscribers and occasionally to deal with list-related

A common fail I've seen after graduation is for queued messages to get
lost because Mentors were the only moderators and they've drifted
away.  Having core contributors serve as listmods generally avoids
that problem.
