Subject Re: Signoff for PPMC reports for October 2018 due Tuesday
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2018 09:18:45 GMT

> They're due today.  Where's the panic?

Um nowhere, but if the report has no sign off it's likely the podling needs to report next
month. I'd like to save the mentors and podling unnecessary work.

Recent board comments have cited a lack of mentor sign off as an issue for the Incubator,
so reminding podlings who may not sign a day or so before it due will hopefully make that
less of an issue.

It's unfortunate that you are the only active mentor on those projects, I suggest you (or
even better suggest it the PPMC to do) reach out to this list and ask for more mentors.

Tone in email is notoriously hard to read right and is often taken the wrong way. Why assume
ill intent? I'm sorry if you took it that way, it certainly wasn't intended as you said. I
reread the text and don't see anything confrontational in it. What in particular made you
take it that way? (So I can change what I send in the future.)

I'm also curious to know if you hadn't seen the reminder would you have remembered to sign
off the reports by the due date?
