I've created a 'Mentoring' page on the wiki [1]. The MOTUs have what
looks like quite a developed mentoring program [2], so maybe we should
shamelessly copy some of their ideas? I'd like to try and get this set
up as soon as possible, so that people will have time to contribute for
this release cycle.

What needs to be done? I was thinking of improving the DocBook reference
if I have time.

These all sort of fall under 'marketing'. I'm happy to write a blog post
to try and get people to contribute, but I'm not sure if anyone actually
reads my blog... Could we put an article on the Fridge or in UWN
