In the case of Marmotta, some of us we are frequently reading 
general@incubator for learning about other podlings (releases, votes and 
so on). So what helped in our case was to forward the timeline as soon 
it was discussed here, so he had some more days for the report preparation.

For October's report, the timeline was:

   Sep 26: timeline fixed by ipmc
   Sep 29: sent to all podling
   Oct 02: report's deadline
   Oct 06: shepherd reviews

Write the report itself does not take so long. But sometimes podlings 
may require some discussion about the wording of some details, which at 
the end means time. Therefore, what about send the reminder as soon as 
the timeline is fixed?

That are my two cents.


P.S.: Apologize for the possible inconveniences caused by the 
circumstance the the last Marmotta release was accepted one day after 
the deadline. E preferred to update the report than to leave such 
information out of the current report, even if we submitted a bit over 
the deadline.
