Having a list of things that mentees should be familiar with sounds like
it could be a good idea. I think everyone should at least know what
a merge is, what a sync is, etc, whether or not they do any
of them.

However, I don't think that a list of tasks that everyone must complete
is a good idea. The point of having a mentoring system, rather than
a teaching one, is to have a tailored learning experience.

You could draw up that list of tasks and use it to ask mentees what
they might like to work on though.
