I like the idea and would love to help with mentoring.

I’ve learned a lot being a Kolla core.

I think every contributor is the same – core or not ☺.  At the end of the 
mentorship, I
think we need to make sure that non-cores feel no different than cores, and 
that every
contributor is the same, welcome, helped and mentored in the community ☺.

I’ll add my name is the signup sheet!

program for Kolla deliverables

Ok sounds fair.  I guess I had misunderstood what nova had done, and thought it 
was a path to success.

I’m happy we can have the conversation about a mentorship program now at least 
in the Kolla project.

I’m not sure how to evaluate the cost of the mentorship program in terms of 
core reviewer time.  Perhaps we should start there.  I know core reviewers are 
swamped for bandwidth, however, I also feel making time for mentorship is 
essential to the project’s long term health.

I am also not sure if we have more individuals interested.  If only Rich is 
interested, that is only one person to mentor.  If 100 people are interested, 
that is beyond our capacity as a team to handle ☺

To help sort out the time commitment for core reviewers, I have started a 
“sign-up sheet” for folks interested in mentoring here:

The idea is great, no doubt here, meaning mentoring and everything, but it 
should not come with price of reducing quality control. 2 x +2 +w should still 
be required from “regular” cores for PS to merge.

As a relatively new member of the openstack community I think the idea of a 
mentorship program is a good one; I'd like to throw my hat in the ring if the 
kolla community needs a guinea-pig to try this on. :)

By the way, I should add, while we look for a +1 from a subteam or
domain expert, it does not equate to a +2 so that a core can come along
and +2/+W. We still require 2 +2s.
