Apache already fixes inquorate (too small) TLPs (by moving to attic or
rebooting). Dead TLPs are discovered by the board when no report is

The problem for the IPMC is understanding whether a podling is small
but health or if it's stunted through poor health. Graduating a small
and unhealthy podling is likely to cause later problems for the board
once it becomes self-governing. Graduating an podling before it's
learned to be self-sustaining increases the probability that the TLP
will fail after it becomes inquorate.

If the Incubator is not sure that a podling is small but healthy, then
would the board be in a better position to make that judgement after

An easy way to trial conditional graduation would be to allow small
podlings (who meet our other graduation criteria) to move from the
main sequence to a special set of rules.
