We should define the responsibilities of a mentor. (Igor, can you
collect the definition and repost it to the list!?)

Here's my view:

The mentor is the first person to contact if there are any
difficulties or questions. The mentor puts his newbie on the relevant
documents/lists etc. He gives some hints on useful tools (debhelper,
debmake, ...) He's *not* the guru to answer all questions. This way
he's more like a personal leader/helper and it isn't a full time job.
