	 queue is empty.

	-Status of mentors.

	 number of junior mentoring slots.  
	 Discussed the remove of MOTU's who requested to be removed from
	 the mentoring program.
	 Discussed contacting mentor and mentee pairs to see if some of
	 the mentee's in the junior program can be advanced to the
	 senior program to free up some junior mentoring slots.

	-Status of mailing list.
         Mailing list has been approved, awaiting Launchpad sysadmin to
	 set it up.  Efforts are being made to make this a reality.

	 Discussed possible solutions for the long standing problem of
	 potential contributors requesting a mentor, their request
	 processed and assigned a mentor, and then the mentee
	 disappearing after 2 or 3 days or doesn't even show up at all.
 	 Discussed potential processes for evaluating a potential
	 contributors level of dedication and (for lack of a better
	 word) qualifications to be in the mentoring program.
Have a good day
