>>
>> Shepherd/Mentor notes:
>>
>>    P. Taylor Goetz (ptgoetz):
>>
>>      NPanday has missed the last two reports (last report August 2014).
>>One
>>      of two mentors are engaged and encouraging the podling to make a
>>final
>>      release before retiring (last release was on 2011-05-17). However,
>>there
>>      is little PPMC/Committer involvement with only 2 PPMC members
>>showing
>>      involvement on the dev@ list in the past year. Also confirmed that
>>a
>>      report reminder email was received by the dev@ list for each of
>>the last
>>      missed reporting periods as well at the current period.
>>
>>      It's clear that mentors past and present have attempted to help the
>>      NPanday project grow to a viable size -- at least enough to
>>approve a
>>      release, new Committer/PPMC Member, or even decide to retire --
>>without
>>      success.
>>
>>      The main warning signs appear to be:
>>
>>      * Inability to reach community consensus (barely 2 acive
>>Committer/PPMC
>>        Members, making 3 +1s for any vote very difficult)
>>      * Inability to perform releases
>>      * Inability to grow the community to a viable size
>>
>>      The issues listed above do not indicate a lack of mentor
>>involvement,
>>      but rather a community in decline.
