This is simple, people.  This is what mentors are for.  When the PMC
submits the board report, someone should mark the ones that need
motivating and task the mentors with doing so.  If the mentors can't
(which is fine, we're all volunteers here), then delegate to someone
who can.

As for motivation, escaping the neverending threads on this mailing
list should be encouragement enough.
