This is a list of plausible candidates:

Anders L

I think the only other ones who are familiar enough with the codebase to be 
mentors are Christian and Richard, who are both too involved in other stuff 
to be reliable mentors.

I'd suggest extending this weeks sync-meeting to give room for finding out who 
is actually available and not too unwilling to be mentor. ;-) Making a list 
of suggested topics would be on the agenda as well.
