Dear all,

as you may know we have been discussing possible ways to make the Mentoring 
program even more efficient.
One possibility raised by Emmet [1] is to split the current program in two 
stages, not directly linked to each other:

Stage 1 would be directed towards newcomers and is meant as an introduction to 
the Ubuntu development, in particular about the methods, tools and processes 
that we use.
At the end of stage 1 a contributor is supposedly able to actively contribute 
to the community through sponsoring.

Stage 2 is instead mainly meant to prepare already active contributors to 
become MOTUs.

Before adopting this change, we would like to know how many developers would 
be willing to change to this scheme, and how many would be available to help 
out with either stage 1, stage 2 or both of them.

In light of an adoption of this scheme, Mentors which are already active are 
kindly requested to communicate to us under which stage would their mentoree 

Please raise your hand!
