I'll leave it to the labs PMC to decide whether this is true and whether 
this is a problem or not.

I'll simply remind the labs PMC that if you believe there is anything 
ComDev can do to help you know where we are.

If you want a suggestion, how about a quarterly "newsletter" to be 
published on the labs site and possibly mailed out to members@ and pmcs@

There are other activities in the ASF that could benefit from such a 
newsletter (press, board, ConCom, ComDev all spring to mind).

The problem is getting the individual PMCs to find the time to create 
their content and having someone collate and publish it. The chances of 
finding someone to do the former is increased if we have content (or at 
least a serious promise of content) coming in.

I'm making no promises myself, but if someone is looking for a way to 
contribute to the foundation I'd be happy to try and make this happen.
