I think it's a great Idea, and probably more productive than doing any
of both things alone. Would it help if the female co-mentor is
familiar with the project itself, or it's totally irrelevant? Like,
for example, say that the project involves aspects thet the co-mentor
is not familiar with (like a particular programming language or the
tools used for developing whatever the project is about), or the idea
is to keep both things -development of the project and involvement in
debian structures- independent?
