Frankly, I can easily see that other aspects of the ASF could make good use
of this same sort of capability.  Generating the draft incubator report is
an example of a task that currently requires a command line program to be
run in a partially documented environment with partially documented
inputs.  A stable web application environment would make this much, much
simpler, especially for new chairs like me.

I can see that there might be a wish to keep missions separate, but it
isn't implausible to broaden the mission here to support inward facing
capabilities.  This would provide an opportunity to grow the community as
well.
