There are two issues here:

1.  What should go in the report.
2.  What actions to take regarding Sentry, if any.

David has already provided his perspective in an excellent Mentor comment on
Sentry.  The formatting needs to be cleaned up, but I think that's the optimal
spot on the report for that information.

David, me, you, or any other interested party could also add a section in the
general narrative at the top of the report mentioning that Sentry has been a
topic of discussion on general@incubator.  I'll probably do that.

The only other thing about commenting on Sentry is that it's important to get
any such material into Monday's DRAFT in order to give the Sentry community
(both contributors and Mentors) sufficient opportunity to review and respond
if necessary.  Adding commentary *after* the DRAFT goes out is dangerous.

With regards to what actions to take, Sentry Mentors David Nalley, Patrick
Hunt, and Joe Brockmeier are all engaged and I'm content to defer to their
judgment.  If they think that reporting monthly for the next three months is
appropriate, they can edit podlings.xml themselves, or they can ask for
someone else to do it and I'm sure John, me, you or another volunteer would
help out.
