Subject Re: Clarification of Mentors from Proposal Guide

I blended Bertrand's improved form with the remaining information from that
section and got this:

Lists eligible (and willing) individuals nominated as Mentors [definition]
for the candidate.

Three Mentors gives a quorum and allows a Podling more autonomy from the
Incubator PMC, so the current consensus is that three Mentors is a good
number. Any experienced Apache community member can provide informal
mentorship anyway, what's important is to make sure the podling has enough
regularly available mentors to progress smoothly. There is no restriction
on the number of mentors, formal or informal, a Podling may have.

"Three Mentors" is a link to participation.html#mentors
"Incubator PMC" is a link
to incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29


WDYT?
