Subject Re: Thoughts on Incubator board reports

Jukka's recent email and activity are precisely what I was hoping for
when I joined the chorus of voices for new leadership.

On this thread, I have a thought or two. Of the podlings I have known,
most required very little supervision. The single largest exception
has always been getting the first release or two through the gauntlet.
I wish that there was a way to recruit the expert scrutinizers to help
out up front. What if a podling could recruit Sebb or one of the other
release aces to help them set up their structure in the first place? I
bet it would be less work to teach than to critique. Not all of us are
so good at this particular topic.

The second largest exception is pushing projects to grow into
sustainable communities. It's not easy. It's not guaranteed. Report
review strikes me as a pretty good solution there.

Historically, I know we've had podlings with other and more
interesting problems, and that disengaged mentors only make that
worse. But join Leo in thinking that good report reviewing is a great
step all by itself.
