No objections.

For the procedure, I don't know if it's actually possible to "redirect"
a mailing list to another. Unless somebody knows how to do this, I would
propose to:

 - add more moderators/admins to both lists,
 - turn the mentors list into emergency mode,
 - subscribe readers of the mentors list to the motu list (if they don't
   do it already),
 - bounce the few incoming mails from mentors to motu if necessary.

The 'mentors' list could be closed completely (IIRC), but then we
wouldn't have the archives any more.

Any mailing list experts who can comment on this? (If you're interest in
becoming moderator/admin of the two lists, please mail me back privately.)

Have a great day,
