That is nice.

Okay, Clutch now re-generates those files every time
it runs.

report_due_1.txt is for group-1 (Jan,Apr,Jul,Oct)
report_due_2.txt is for group-2 (Feb,May,Aug,Nov)
report_due_3.txt is for group-3 (Mar,Jun,Sep,Dec)

e.g. cat report_due_2.txt
BlueSky Cassandra Droids ESME Kato Lokahi PDFBox PhotArk Pivot Sling Stonehenge VCL WSRP4J

Please say if you want a different format or
additional text in the files.

Would you or someone else please handle the cron job
to send the email.

So projects will then have many ways to know when their
reports are due:
* the commit diffs for the report_due_*.txt
* etc.
* the automated email each month.

The remaining problem will be that someone needs to
create the Wiki page at the beginning of each month,
and add the banner, due date, and list of projects.

For the last few months that has been me. Please don't
rely on that. Anyone can do it. Ditto with running Clutch.

If someone wants to create a more sophisticated
Marvin-like reminder system, or extend Marvin, then
the main data file generated by Clutch has the
name of the podling's dev list, which reporting group,
and whether they are on monthly reporting.
Do 'python' in the top-level of
incubator svn.
