Here is my thoughts.  Instead of having the mentoree sit around and wait
for a mentor to pick them, we should encourage them to read through the
wiki pages and start providing feedback.  Once picked by a mentor, the
mentor could already have a body of work to examine.  It's not like the
karma is going to be wasted, the feedback is good.  Lets try to limit
the points in time where somebody might be sitting idle waiting for
somebody else to do something.
