No misrepresentation intended, just an inaccurate generalization on my part.

My suggestion is to ask the podlings now in category 2 to report again
in May on their progress on the identified blockers. If there's been
no measurable progress by then, we'll dig deeper to see what we can
do. Podlings reporting in other months can be picked up for a similar
oversight cycle over the coming months. By July we should then have a
pretty accurate record of progress throughout the entire Incubator,
including a clear list of podlings that are stuck and need help.

Before the next quarterly report I'd rely on mentors to help the
podlings identify and implement ways to move forward. And of course,
if a podling or its mentors feel that more help is needed, asking on
general@ or submitting an extra report is always a good idea.
