I wonder if anyone other than me is reading everything before or even after
it is submitted.  And without the Mentors actively flagging "HOUSTON, WE
HAVE A *PROBLEM*", it is likely that people skim reports without noticing
the problem.

That would almost certainly be logistically infeasible.  On a personal note,
it would likely result in my resigning as PMC Chair for the same reason that
I annually disqualify myself from running for Board election.  However, if
the goal is to prod the Incubator PMC into more closely reviewing the status
reports, we could try an alternative.

For example, rather than close the cat-herding the weekend before the report
is due (and, factually, finishing herding tardy projects the day that the
report is filed), we could set a cut-off of the second Monday of each month,
or similarly appropriate date, and give the PMC a week to review and approve
the report before it is submitted to the Board.
