The above is all mostly unrelated. I do think we should have included
some of our mentors in the PMC.

This was a failure in the method we chose to determine the initial PMC:
we chose based on project visibility/popularity and by their function our
mentors have tried to remain with a low profile and intervene only when
it was absolutely necessary.

This is something relatively easy to fix though, let's hope it doesn't delay
us too much.

Pedro.
