Offering any serious mentoring for newbies will only keep developers busy who could otherwise do things that would bring more value to the kernel.

There is the question of exactly how long you'd like this project to survive though (in a vibrant form).

Remarked elsewhere recently that a downside of the new development model seems to be missing opportunity for new editions of books with "all new! covers 2.8!" blurps on the cover.

That is, not seeing quality documentation emerge, not seeing mentoring from experienced developers... -- where and how do you want the new developers to come from? If only from business linux as a community thing is as dead as when you'd just close shop.
