I don't agree that consensus is being built on that direction or any other.  At this point
I only see consensus on giving podlings more autonomy and authority.  The disagreement seems
to be that some want podlings to essentially be a TLP from the beginning while others prefer
transitioning them from podling to TLP but faster than happens today.

FWIW, I'm in complete agreement with Jim's message from early this morning which i read as
effectively saying, the IPMC should not be worrying so much about how podlings are doing but
about how mentors are doing.
