I believe that mentors.debian.org is a better name for the
pseudopackage. In a brief query with DSA, they are in principle ok
with having mentors.debian.org point to www.debian.org/devel/mentors
(or some similar subpage in the w.d.o hierarchy) explaining the
mentoring process and the workflow for the mentors.debian.org

From my owner@bdo perspective, I am willing to create the
pseudopackage mentors.debian.org in the BTS assuming that:

1) www.debian.org/devel/mentors (or similar) has been created

2) The requirements for a psuedopackage in
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=544192#10 coupled
with a bug report against bugs.debian.org asking for the creation of
the psuedopackage.

3) DSA gives a final OK on creating the mentors.debian.org name with a
redirect to that subpage.

You think to yourself, hey, it's a test tube, for God's sake. Pretty
soon, though, the rush from a test tube isn't enough. You want to
experiment more and more. Then before you know it, you're laying in
the corner of a lab somewhere with a Soxhlet apparatus in one hand,
a three neck flask in the other, strung out and begging for grant
