I have just recommended the mentoring scheme here to two people. One a woman,
the other, I think, a man. (It is hard to be sure on the internet.)
Sadly, the woman says that she had a look at the list, but doesn't like any
differentiation shown, so doesn't like the name of the list. She complains
of having been discriminated against, but is discriminating herself.
So although she wants to be a maintainer, and finds studying how to be one
from manuals difficult, she is not going to ask for a mentor.
So often, women are their own worst enemies. :-(
