Start drafting the generic part of our board report

  TODO: Report preamble
  
+ o Community
+ 
+   The following podlings are requesting graduation to Apache TLPs:
+ 
+   - Apache Accumulo
+   - Apache Lucy
+   - Apache Rave
+   - Apache Sqoop
+ 
+   The Incubator PMC recommends the board to accept the respective resolutions.
+   Other podlings like RAT (Creadur) are currently preparing for graduation.
+ 
+   No new project proposals have been received since our last report.
+ 
+   The initial response to our recent increased emphasis on report review
+   has been positive, and it looks like the effort is starting to bear fruit
+   in terms of timely reports and a gradually improving focus on graduation
+   plans across the Incubator.
+ 
+ o Releases
+ 
- The following incubating releases were made since our last report:

    - March 10th, 2012: Apache Jena TDB 0.9.0-incubating

- Of particular note are the following items from podling reports:
+   The release process continues to be a source of trouble for many
+   podlings and also to the Incubator in general. The typical symptom
+   of this trouble are major delays in releases of some podlings.
+   We've had discussions about ways to fix this, but so far there
+   unfortunately hasn't been much concrete progress even though
+   release review is a major part of PMC oversight.
+ 
+ o Infrastructure
+ 
+   Thanks especially to Joe and Sebb, the Incubator web site is now
+   managed using the Apache CMS.
+ 
+   Three podlings - Cordova, DeltaSpike and S4 - are using the Git
+   repositories provided by the infra team. The early experiences
+   seem to have been generally positive with no major issues raised,
+   though no detailed review of potential community impacts has yet
+   been done.
+ 
+   The infrastructure migrations of large or complex projects like
+   OpenOffice and Flex have been (and continue being) fairly long
+   processes that seem to have generated at least some frustration.
+   We're hoping to collect experience of key problems so that future
+   podlings with similar needs could at least better anticipate and
+   plan for the scope such issues.
+ 
+ -------------------- Summary of podling reports --------------------
+ 
+ We reviewed all podlings reporting in this quarter and categorized them
+ according to their progress through the Incubator and the most pressing
+ issues that are currently blocking progress.
+ 
+ Still getting started at the Incubator (3 podlings)
+ 
+   DeviceMap, Flex, Syncope
+ 
+   These projects are still getting started, so no immediate progress
+   towards graduation is yet expected.
+ 
+ Not yet ready to graduate (14 podlings)
+ 
+   IP clearance: Openmeetings
+   No release: Bloodhound, Cordova, OpenOffice
+   Low activity: Kalumet, Kato
+   Low diversity: Bigtop, Etch, Isis, Hama, HCatalog, MRUnit, S4, Wave
+ 
+   We expect the next quarterly report of projects in this category to
+   include a summary of their actions and progress in solving these issues. 
+ 
+ Ready to graduate (6 podlings)
+ 
+   Accumulo, Flume, ManifoldCF, RAT, Rave, Sqoop
+ 
+   We expect these projects to graduate within the next quarter.
+ 
+ The full podling reports are included below. Of particular note are the
+ following items from podling reports:
  
    - Flex is working on a custom trademark licensing agreement.
    - Kato no longer considers itself blocked by Oracle's position on JSR 326
    - Openmeetings is looking for potential users within the ASF
    - OpenOffice is progressing well, preparing for an initial release
    - Sqoop resolved a concern about code under an external package name
