I live the idea of Stage 1 and Stage 2 separation and am willing to
shift me efforts to the Stage 1 needs of mentees ( I have no current
mentee's ) But not sponsoring a mentee's patches I think ads just a
little too much red tape into the program for my taste, I see no problem
with it as MOTU should know when they are comfortable uploading a given
patch/change , that is of course why they were given upload privileges
in the first place. I agree that a Mentor should work to integrate the
mentee into the MOTU Community.
