Two large block check-ins in January.  One for python, one for ruby.  It
seems as if most of the development is happening off-line and being
committed by proxy.  Paul Querna posted one message raising those concerns.
There were no replies, and he didn't follow up.

Almost none is a tad of a stretch, but certainly nothing like the level of
developer discussion that one would want to see.  And that compounds when
considered in light of the proxy commits.

That happened back in October.  The last message I see on the subject was
from Ted in November, saying: "I sent a note about that to heraldry-dev and
heard crickets in response."  On the other hand, the Mentors are posting
little more than a message a month, each, so there isn't much hands-on

Clearly there needs to be some corrective action, and more guidance on how
an ASF project is supposed to conduct itself.
