+1 to your comments Tim.

I'll point out - the statement Ted's made isn't exactly what the board has

When I look at the older podlings out there: Wave, ODF, Blur, Streams (as
the short list), none of them seem to me like they shouldn't graduate.  I
almost feel like there's a fear of graduation.  It may be we need to
encourage them to plan to graduate.  You'll also notice in a recent podling
report I pointed to a list of podlings who seem to have their acts together
well enough to graduate.  The IPMC can't force a podling to move along,
they have to take the next steps themselves.

For the record, if anyone's interested in the whimsy link:
