Wow, what a recruit -- thanks for stepping up, Joe!  With your background in
tech journalism, you're extremely overqualified for the Report Manager's
editorial aspects.

I look forward to supporting you this month and in July as well.  As far as
ongoing, let's revisit after the July report.  The report is a pretty big
production, and we've been working towards building a pool of people who can
rotate in so that no one person burns out.

John, I'm not totally clear on how you envision divvying up responsibility.
Here's how we've done things before:

    mechanical -- Send report timeline email.
    mechanical -- Assign podlings which do not report to "monthly".
    editorial  -- Assemble list of releases.
    editorial  -- Create podling summary.
    editorial  -- Write narrative, misc, legal, infrastructure, etc. sections.
    mechanical -- Normalize report formatting
    mechanical -- Send "shepherding" email.
    Chair      -- Deliver report to Board.
    mechanical -- Prepare next month's report template.

It seems to me that your "shepherd manager" partially overlaps the
"mechanical" responsibilities laid out here.

Joe, what would you like to take on?
