I said I agree with a No Mentors Policy but suddenly it strikes me that we should use experience of some people who have been before our time and can act as central point of contact
IMO, Chuck aka terrorpup is one of them S Kemter aka Gnokii is one of them
I say this because they are involved from the beginning of the beginning of the project and they can help us a lot more. Plus it would be nice for people to know who they should speak to rather than randomly asking on IRC
when I see it right, what the others mean its that what I had in mind, there as not a selected group of mentors to be. We should not use the expierence of some people, we should use the expierience of all of us. I think it should be normal to help with advise when u can it and sometimes put the new one, when he need help to the right person if u not know the answer self.
We should feel responsible for the person next to us and not try to creates new jobs with titles.

HI, I think mentoring is not that important in this situation. because interested contributors can join as an ambassador and get to know the procedure and then they can apply for the membership.
BTW if there is a help needed to newly joined ambassadors they can raise it in the IRC or mailing list. Then they are able to get more solutions for the matter without being centric to one person as in mentoring.
So i think this procedure is an extra burden and there are many things to be done rather than mentoring. First I think it would be useful but now I feel its not that important. One or two people can handle adding ambassadors to the list. Answer to the questing can be posted to the mailing list. And if there is any help please post it to the list and IRC. That ll work well. -- Regards,
