Subject Re: Shepherds for podling reports
Date Wed, 02 May 2012 08:59:35 GMT

This is a good idea. I have signed up. I only ask you bear one thing
in mind. Some months active people here have lots of their own
podlings reporting, which takes quite a bit of time if done
diligently. When assigning shepherd each month please bear in mind how
many reports they are already signing off on.

That being said, I'm happy to help you as much as you need.
