 IMO, any viable community should be responsible for managing their own destiny.  Mentors
should prod, poke, suggest, influence, coach and verify everything the podling does, but the
PPMC should be responsible for developing and reporting out a graduation roadmap.

+1, The mentor should help, but producing the actual report should be
a Community/PPMC responsibility.
