It seems to work out quite fine.

Olaf.  Please, don't be so negative and pessimistic on every other
occasion.  I'm co-administrator.  I see the mentors' applications.  I
approve the Hurd ones, amongst a lot of others.  We're talking to each
other.  We may even send email to mentors applicants, CCing some
projects' maintainers, asking for clarification in case we don't know the
people.  Due to Rodrigo's suggestion (it wasn't ``if and only if'', by
the way) we don't have to send as much individual email.  It works out
quite nicely, I can say.

Apparently that too works quite nicely for a number of projects.  Again,
note *should* and not *must*.
