Sorry I missed that round trip. Didn't mean to imply you were MiA,
but just wanted to say that to me a non-signed report is like
a non-report. IOW, if it were up to me I'd ask for it to be re-submitted
next month (fully understanding that mistakes happen).

It is just for the first time ever they are talking about having a release
'real soon now!' I thought that was the first sign they were serious
about getting closer to graduation.

Terrific! Thanks for sticking with this poddling. Sounds like you're
doing everything to help them move forward.

This is very much appreciated!

Now, based on what you and Upayavira have said, perhaps it is not
more mentors (as I originally implied) but a collective capacity of
IPMC to make tough calls that is needed here.

Is there any chance for an honest discussion with the poddling?
