If we want Gentoo to thrive, we need to focus on getting the best people. Here's some brainstorming I'm doing (as I wait in the store for my wife to try on clothes) on how to better develop our most important resource: our contributors. Does it make sense? Any thoughts?
Track who's mentored people
How many people?
How good are the mentees?
How long do the mentees stay in Gentoo?
Do they become mentors or leaders?
How long does mentorship continue?
Reward mentors publicly
GMN - graphs, individual names
Mention in recruitment email
Mentoring is important
Get better new devs
Improve existing devs by pairing w senior mentors (code review, designing/proposing major changes, etc)
Best mentors can train how to do it
