Hi -

I've been too busy to do more than lurk occasionally. Consequently I am not mentoring and
not shepherding lately.

I do want to add something to this debate. PMCs write their board reports to the board in
whatever way they want. The Incubator is about teaching PPMCs how to become PMCs. We can make
it easy for our purposes, but we don't need to add more tooling and process to being a Podling.
Doing such may serve the IPMC, but it may harm our clutch of podlings.

Regards,
Dave
