>What is required of such a "mentor"? I'm experienced with software and know at least the theory of hardware design. I've even been toying with my own schematic editor (that 'Gtk with Haskell' idea), but after several months, there's still nothing usable due to lack of free time on my part.
A mentor is the guy which has the overall responsibility for the
student, and acts as the contact to the student. What's important here
is that it's more of a "meta-contact", answering personal questions and
helping bootstrapping the student by introducing him to the community.
All of the technical discussions should be discussed as we normally do,
by using the mailing list and documenting it on the wiki.
Life on the earth might be expensive, but it
includes an annual free trip around the sun.
