Romain, that sound like a very rigid regimented structure that I fear 
will cause "i'm better than you" kind of feelings, etc.

I don't see the point in strictly classifying people in either masters 
or slaves (sorry, freudian slip, i meant apprentices) because skill 
levels are a lot more varied and fluid than just two classes.

Of course there will be mentors and mentored but there is no need to 
create a rigid two class structure with priviledges for the master 

This sounds very much against the spirit of a collaborative community to

I hope this dual-class system is not set in stone already.
