Unless I am mistaken, any Gentoo developer is free to open a "New 
developer" bug for consideration by our recruiters team, as long 
as he is willing to mentor the recruit. I see no reason for the 
sci team to impose additional restrictions upon its members. I 
think we can trust the judgement of the mentoring dev on this.

I am ready to mentor a candidate. I have the necessary free time 
right now and will have it for a few months. I have already 
mentored someone once and found it a very rewarding experience.

Since everybody agrees that we need more hands, I asked 
recruiters to update the Staffing Needs on the gentoo.org Web 
site to reflect this.

Kind regards,
