I'm confused as to what your referent is. When you say “this should be a
place for […] minimal experienced intervention (mentoring)”, what place
do you mean?

The ‘debian-mentors’ resource is for contributors to find willing DDs to
mentor them in the art of Debian package maintenance, as part of
sponsoring a package into Debian.

You seem to be referring to something other than ‘debian-mentors’, am I
