RE: [eclipse.org-architecture-council] PDT needs a mentor
the bug you reference is about a situation where the Community
wants a release of PDT based on something that's in the CVS
Repository already, they even offer to do all the work, but
the project leadership denies this for dubious reasons.
I'm not sure if a mentor can help here. Mentorship requires
the Project to request and appreciate the Mentor's advice.
Mentors cannot dictate anything.
Let's see where this goes. You already mentioned the Dev
Process passage about Grievance handling. I'm not sure how
much the AC can help here...
