Subject Re: last release date in reports?
Date Thu, 02 Feb 2012 16:22:37 GMT
Hi Joe,

I don't know if this is as fundamental as the 'last release date' issue you
raise, but it might be also advantageous to the board for (especially)
podlings to mention whether trunk is broken or not. In the past I've seen
some podlings with trunk broken for some time and although in some cases
this might be something trivial, in other cases it can mean that there is
something more severe at play and the board may wish to know an accurate
snapshot representation of the project when reporting is due.
This is just my personal opinion, and I know it is not paramount, but it
creates a layer of transparency which I think could really help mentors as
well as the Board to comment accordingly.
