If a TLP chair sends the board a report that doesn't include enough of
the right detail what happens is they are sent a quiet and gentle
reminder, eg [1] (for those with access to private lists). So no
rejecting the report or requiring a resubmit. Couldn't an equally
quiet and gentle approach with an email to the poddlings private list
also be taken here, at least initially?
