Don't be scared to ask questions on the list. If you are truly stuck with 
using a particular facility, ask away! ... If you are worried that the 
questions will clutter an otherwise, well, _cluttered list_ then I'm sure

Mentoring might be the wrong term as it implies some obligation from the 
person assisting. If you were contributing code then I'm sure someone might
