I believe that Robert was pointing out that the reality (aka, the
practical problem) is that people are submitting right up to the (board)
deadline, and not getting them in when we've asked for them.

This depends on what you mean by responsible.  Unless the Mentor is going
to be the PMC Chair, the Community had better start getting it done.  We
may consider the Mentor to be responsible to the PMC, but I think that it
would be fair for the Mentor to be responsible for saying *something*,
even if just to say that the Community is not meeting its responsibility
of getting a proper report done.  And in that case, we'd consider it as if
they had missed the report, and start to consider appropriate and
corrective action.
