I read the entire report every month.  Then again, I'm a director so I'm
supposed to.  8-)  I'd bet most PPMC members never read the report as
submitted; only look at their own part of the report.

seem to be aware of it despite it appearing in the report several times. It seems to me that
having each podling PMC read each monthly report could be of benefit to them and that it might
be a good idea to it to all email it to all PPMC each month? What do others think?

Sending the whole report to all podlings monthly is overbearing.  It
would do them good to read the other reports (both for comments as well
as how reports are written), but that's putting a bunch of burden on new
community members at Apache, and they'll likely wholly ignore it.

One thing that feels useful would be a post-board meeting meta-summary,
kind of like Phil now does as Chairman.  Phil has taken part of the
Chairman's report and made it about common issues between projects, or
even just which projects wrote great reports and why.  Something like
that is hard to produce - extra work for our few IPMC report organizing
volunteers - but could be high-impact since it's short enough with
focused commentary that PPMCs might read and learn from it.

Definitely a good idea you have in some way!
