Well, my limited experience with debian-mentors has been less interesting
than what d-w has set up. People seem to use the list to ask specific
questions of a large group of people or to request a sponsor. The big
advantage of d-w's setup is that it's one-on-one, a real mentoring
relationship. The current climate of -mentors is more like
debian-newbie-packager or something. There's nothing wrong with that, but I
feel like the one-on-one interaction might benefit a wider audience.
