Mentoring Program Updates

Here are a few updates on the mentoring program that I announced in a previous blog post.

First, I ended up keeping applications open for 12 days. During that time, I got 34 applications. Many of the 9 committer-mentors who initially offered to mentor one person ended up deciding that they would be willing to mentor two people, so I was able to send out 14 acceptances, which I think is a great result, especially considering that this is the first time we've done something like this.
