I can definitely help run it.

I raised up a bit of discussion today at UOS (very basic). There are still
several things we can discuss tomorrow on the roundtable and here in the ML.

In the case of mentors, it's not a 1-1 mentorship. It's a group of mentors
for the entire org. Also, students assign themselves tasks, so we don't
need to tell each one what to do. Any team who wants access would be given
to the platform, and then they could post to get help with whatever they
need. Finally, mentors oversee all the tasks of the org. Ideally, each
mentor would oversee the tasks they publish, but if anything happens any
other mentor can take over. Oh! I was forgetting. Tasks are simple things,
such as 'fix this bug', or 'dump this small-ish db', things that have a
low-medium difficulty. It's not a project they're working on, but several
tasks inside a big organization.

If there's any questions I may be able to help, since I myself have
participated during two years.
