This I feel confident helping with.
Should people willing to do this be listed as 'backup mentors' or
should we include some statement in the application to the tune of :
"To increase response time, we are employing assistant mentors.  Their
job is to assist students with non-project specific issues, which
includes  general building, compilation, and development environment."

I agree. The lack of transparency was an issue last year.

What about agreeing to include a subject header to indicate the email
is intended for anyone to read?
That would allow students and mentors to use a mail filter to identify
such emails.
