A mentor system is mentioned here:
Unfortunately it does not address how one goes about finding such
a mentor.

Exactly like you did: ask on the list! ;-)

That document is a bit out of date, since the person
who was organizing mentorship (Graham) is no longer
a contributor. These days, we don't have official
leadership; development is more like an open venue
where people are free to coordinate however they
want, and project-wide decisions are consensus-based.

If you want to contribute, that's great. Be sure
to set up your environment as described on

Then, it's best to start with simple tasks, to get
acquainted with the structure of the code and our
contributing process. There are a lot of easy issues
in the tracker at GitLab:

I'm a contributor, not a developer, and if you want a
formal mentor you'll have more luck with someone else.
That being said, be free to contact me off-list if
you feel the need to -- even though, most of the
time, it's best to keep communication public so
all can pitch in.
