Subject RE: IMPORTANT: Change of schedule for Incubator Board Reports
Date Mon, 13 Mar 2006 19:28:28 GMT

I was thinking of the alphabetically suggestion as a way to divide the 
projects initially. When new projects arrive, allocation them to the 
bucket with the least projects, or rebalance if necessary. As long as each 
project reports 4 times a year, it should be ok to swap slots

Yes.  And that one third changes as projects come in and out of the

That's certainly one way.  Modified so that any project that wants to exit
the Incubator must also provide a report for that month's Board report.

But would that mean that projects would want to choose their name based 
when they'd report?  Unlikely.  However, what about when a new project 
another project from one month to another?  I suppose that's alright.
