I see we have 65 subscribers to the incubator list, many of whom I
assume might be good mentor candidates.  I agree that representatives
of projects that have completed the process are the most likely mentor
candidates for new projects.

What reaching out do you propose beyond this on-list exchange?

One other thing I might suggest is that we could relax the rule that says
a person can only mentor one project at a time.
