It is an indicator of malaise.

The aim of Clutch is to assist us all, ex-podlings included,
to keep the Incubator flowing. I expect us to be encouraging
these new people to be self-reliant, to keep certain key
information up-to-date, to clean up their old resources,
and to fix documentation and processes on their way.
Having those type of people will enable the whole ASF to be
more efficient.

By this stage of a new project's life, their mentors should
not need to be involved at all. I reckon that neither the mentors
nor IPMC should need to do anything for their post-graduation.

I actually want to enhance Clutch to look for completion
of other departure clean up. (Gradually, sometime.)

Its intent is to be encouraging. I have considered sending
a non-automated email to their new dev lists at some stage
after their graduation.

Henk has been doing that via his own tools, which is helping
to keep the distribution mirrors clean.
