Subject Re: What should be the consequences of missing required Incubator Reports?
Date Mon, 19 Jan 2009 17:37:45 GMT
Provided that we get a Marvin like script for PPMC's to get notified
of a pending report, in my opinion:
- the first missing report should be dealt with by the Mentors on the
podling-dev list (to engage the community), and the podling has to
report the next month.
- the second consecutive missing report should invoke response from
the Incubator PMC (perhaps the Chair), to the podling dev-list, with a
stern warning that 3 strikes is out. A PMC member should try to work
with the community to get a report out, and see what is happening with
the Mentors.
 - the third consecutive missing report should invoke termination of
the podling. If the podling community can't bother to report 3 times
in a row, the community is MIA and we can use the cycles in a better
way.

Now what should happen when a podling is on and off with reporting to
a schedule? I don't know. Probably a sign that the Mentors are
overworked and that additional guidance capacity is necessary.
