Well I only sent that yesterday so... there's still time (but technically
was due yesterday).  It's unfortunately become the norm.  With the holidays
as well, I suspect more people will be out.

There is for instance a report of a podling of mine that I've not signed
off on.  I believe they know why, but I may follow up.

The corrective measure is the board's feedback every month.  I can only
encourage podlings to speak up.

- Bring up to your mentors the fact that they don't sign off.
- Mentors bring up to each other when sign off is missing.
- IPMC members point out when it's happening, or missing (as in your
response).
