Some final notes

  in the rough starting/incubating/graduating categories has gone from
  7/13/4 in February to 2/9/7 now.
+ Our recent focus on report review with active feedback to and dialogue with
+ the podlings has helped drive this progress. Until now this extra effort has
+ come from just a few individuals, but we're working on ways to make this
+ more sustainable by sharing the work for example by having IPMC volunteers
+ as "shepherds" who'll review specific reports in more detail. Initial results
+ seem promising.
+ While not designed to replace the existing mentor model, the extra reviews
+ have helped spot and deal with many cases where podlings have been in need
+ of extra help or just some gentle pushing ahead. We're looking at ways to
+ track mentor activity in order to better identify such cases before they
+ become too troublesome.

    concerns about the low project activity were raised. Based on feedback from

    for quite a while.
+ o Infrastructure
+   The Flex project is still blocked with its migration to ASF infrastructure,
+   which seems to be a major contributing factor to the downwards trend seen in
+   Flex list activity. A solution or at least some workaround is urgently needed.
