Hi Ted -- can you take care of these items please?

Well, I think we can do better yet if we integrate the Incubator's monthly
reporting into whimsy.  My perception is that the total burden is too high.
In the past it was borne solely by the Chair, which was not at all
sustainable.  Now it is spread, but additional tooling can improve matters

However, I'm trying to hold off on that conversation until the current Chair
has actually performed all the tasks involved with the report and so groks the
full scope.  Hint hint. ;)
