No, the Foundation wasn't formed for this purpose, and doing something
like this through there would end up taking longer then the deadline to
pass through even if it was ...
As for the mentoring program ... my read on it is that the developer has
to make a proposal for what they wish to accomplish, that proposal goes to
the mentoring organization who then approves or rejects the proposal ...
the proposal, again, from my take, can't be simply tackling a few random
issues, but is more meant to deal with large projects that would take
someone full time to get done ... ie. the GiST rewrite or something of
similar scale ...
