Subject: Re: Incubator report sign-off


before answering Ross' proposal, I'd like to remark that I was holding
off on replying to see whether viewpoints that we haven's seen before
would emerge. It seems that they didn't. It seems that we're still limited
by the following options wrt. resolving mentors AWOL issues:
    1. get rid of IPMC altogether and move to the pTLP model
    2. make this a poddling issue: if a poddling fails to hunt down ALL
        the mentors for a sign-off -- reject its report
    3. patch the current process with starting to drop the mentors from
        the project who don't sign off. This will essentially serve
        as a heartbeat for mentors (now, in my opinion it'll quickly
       deteriorate into mindless tick-offs -- but at least it does not harm).

Thus, to me, the choice is really about #1 and #3. So perhaps, the
path forward is to try #3 first and then, if things don't improve, go
all the way to #1. Please let me know what do you think.

Let me ask you this: do you think it would be worth our while to try this
without any other changes? IOW, make #2 a champion's problem, instead
of poddling's problem? No other changes needed.

   That was a question to Ross.  I am chiming in to favor the "try this."
