Sadly, I was less available than I expected to review his work, and so
I don't feel comfortable yet to stop mentoring.

I asked Pablo and he is fine if I extend the mentoring to the end of
September. I expect that one extra month should be enough, but I will
be in holiday most of August ;-)

I just wanted to say thanks for thinking about this to begin with. It's very easy to set a new core dev loose and forget what it takes to get up and running.
