Clutch must be run. A lot depends on it. Particularly reporting, but also podling status and

It might be more useful looking at which columns of data are still useful on the clutch page
and also follow up by converting clutch and project main pages to the new jBake format.

Here is what is on <>

We can drop the Sponsor column - it is always Incubator.

A: startDate
B: elapsedDays - <3 <12 <18 <24 >24 months
	Should we adjust the color thresholds? <4 <12 <24 <36 >36 months I think are
more reflective of concerns.

C: reportingMonthly (current report: February2019 )
D: reportingGroup - in which set of months do they report:
	group-1=Jan,Apr,Jul,Oct group-2=Feb,May,Aug,Nov group-3=Mar,Jun,Sep,Dec
E: hasReportingGroup - did podling remember to choose a group
	Combine C, D, and E into one column?

F: hasStatusEntry in the main "Currently in incubation" table (i.e. i.a.o/projects generated
from content/podlings.xml)
G: statusUpdateDate - the status page was last updated
H: statusAge - days since the SVN status page was last updated - <2 <4 <9 >9 months
I: statusUpdateCounts - number of commits to status file in the previous 2,4,9 months (cumulative)
	What we do with these depends on how we address the future of the status xml and yml.

J: numberCommitters - accounts have been established, total number to date
K: numberCommittersNew - new committers added since establishment (gathered from each project's
Status page "News" section)
	J is always a '-' and it looks like few podlings update News in status.
	Idea - Update to be J: initial size of committers list and K: (current size - initial size.)

L: hasSvn - Subversion repository is created
	Only two podlings have svn - we need to update to reflect the status of gitbox OR svn.

M: hasTracker - has an Issue Tracker
N: hasMailListDev - has dev mail list and archives
O: hasMailListCommits - has commits mail list and archives
P: hasWebSite
	These are important.

Q: hasDistributionArea - has w.a.o/dist/incubator/... area (not necessarily yet a release)
R: hasKeys - has a PGP "KEYS" file in their distribution area
S: hasRelease - has a release in their distribution area
	These are important too.

There is useful information in there that goes away with a TLP LDAP or when LDAP goes away
with retirement. Also these xml files do define the podling status page.
> Whimsy also uses yml files under content/podlings/ to document some of the same information
that is in the xml. I think that this better conforms with our current workflows. I think
that the data here should be made to override and replace the xml files somehow.

I’ve done the README.txt for trunk. I’m checking in the two.

Justin - it would be ideal to move the reporting scripts to a directory so that there are
less questions. It might be best to do that as we redo the runback and process for the required
change to Confluence.
