Both guru and mentor are flattering, but not necessarily descriptive
of an older someone who is co-discovering computers with the child.
Remember, Debian Jr. has a focus in the home. Guru in particular
is overused in 'tech speak'. Mentor is more to my liking, but seems
to be a bit exalted a term to refer to someone in an intimate
relationship with the child (e.g. sibling or parent).
