Additional shepherd volunteers would be very helpful.  Up till now, all
shepherds have been IPMC members, but the Incubator's report is a collective
work of the community.

Something to think about: On our last report, one podling's Mentors felt that
the shepherd's comments required a response.  It's a good thing that the
shepherd comments were filed early enough in this case to allow time for that

With that in mind, I'd like to make a small change to how we schedule
shepherding, which will hopefully make things go more smoothly for shepherds
of all experience levels.

*   Shepherd slots will be assigned earlier -- two weeks before the
    report is due (and three weeks before the Board meeting).
*   Shepherd comments will be due by the end of the Sunday before the
    Wednesday we file the report (instead of Tuesday like last cycle.)
*   The compendium of shepherd comments will be sent to general@incubator on
    Monday, allowing 2-3 days for people to respond if necessary.
