Since the Incubator reports are a public process in a wiki we don’t really have a process
for <private> in Incubator podling reports.

I see two possibilities.

(1) Use whimsy tools. I think would increase the volume on private@ to board@ levels and we
do not want that much heaviness in the IPMC where mentoring is the major goal.

(2) Have PPMCs email the IPMC about <private> matters so that we can take these up and
if warranted bring these to the Board’s attention in our Incubator report. So, I think we
would need to have the phrase be as John suggests.

We should revisit documentation about podling private issues and remind the PPMCs that they
can reach out to private@incubator. (Examples could be a complaints about Mentors or personal
community issues that are personal and that don’t think should be made in public.)
