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.
