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?
  Commits, etc
 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)
 Improve mentoring
  Best mentors can train how to do it
