There is a very enthusiastic user who has been contributing great work to my overlay, but I cannot find anyone to mentor him (I've e-mailed sound@g.o as well as recruiters@g.o without much success). Maybe we should create a list of developers who are willing to mentor new devs? It would make finding a mentor much easier.

12 wait till you have your required months at gentoo, then you mentor him,
13 if you truly like his work, tell him you have to wait before you can
14 mentor him, iirc 6 months from joining?
15 he could wait till then, and maybe appreciate your working relationship
16 even more, 6 months is a nice time to see if his performance is
17 consitent too
19 no dev has to refer anyone to someone else unless they are not long
20 enough with the project, and then it is only a matter of time :)
