Subject Re: [DRAFT] Incubator PMC Board Report - October 2017
Date Tue, 10 Oct 2017 01:14:12 GMT
Dave,

Thanks.  I missed that.  In addition, I'm just noticing now that the sign
offs from mentors weren't actually entered by the mentors.  I cannot find
any form of approval on list from the mentors.

Milagro podling,

Can you please address Dave's questions?  In addition, I have removed the
sign off checks since they were not applied by the mentors.

John
