Both of those are just from the last two days. By your own account you
and all the other ASF directors, several of whom who are also
Incubator PMC members, have been reading for example the Kato reports
repeatedly for 18 months and have made no comments, no questioning of
anything, no asking for clarifications, no asking for a new report
next month, and no asking to report consecutively for a three month
period, certainly no quiet and gentle comment to the mentors or
poddling to provide more detail in their report for next time.
