I realise very much. But at the long term the problem might not be 
mentoring, but recruiting - how?

That is why I am making noise (-. But maybe the "discuss" list is not 
the right place - people who read this list will know already.

What I mean is: the team that made Mageia 1 has done a great job - it is 
evident, that they are needed to play a similar leading role with 
Mageia2. Off-loading all (most) work concerned with keeping Mageia1 in 
shape to maintainers is the evident solution to keep their load within 
limits - another aspect why having maintainers is essential (I assume 
that, at present, if an essential package is broken and has no 
maintainer, the developers play a role as a last ressort).
