=== What is your plan for dealing with disappearing mentors? ===
Distribute the workload
amongst the remaining mentors. The mailing list is
active enough and questions almost never go unanswered. Reassign the student to
a backup mentor. In the worst case, the project admin can become a mentor for
the student until another backup mentor is found.
This should be infrequent and we hope to prevent
this to begin with by selectingmentors with proven involvement in Octave or other free projects. We are also
pairing new mentors with older ones.
