- o Legal / Trademarks
+   The availability of IPMC votes for podling releases remains a perennial
+   problem and source of discontent.  This month, it took between 4 and 20 days
+   from the start of the RC vote on the podling dev list for the third IPMC +1
+   vote to be cast.

+ 
+ * IP Clearance
+ 
+   Cloudant's donation of BigCouch passed by lazy consensus.
+ 
+ * Miscellaneous
+ 
+   A schism in the IPMC membership was revealed with regards to whether the
+   text of a proposal may be modified while a vote is underway.  It was
+   resolved that proposals may not be modified, but opinion remains sharply
+   divided.
+ 
+   Two new draft documentation pages were well received:
+ 
+   o "What to Expect", an introduction for incoming podling contributors.
+   o "Mailing List Options", guidance for requesting mailing lists.
+   
+   The following topics were discussed on general@incubator but have not yet
+   resulted in concrete action:
+ 
+   o Provisional top-level projects ("pTLP" for short), a less radical offshoot
+     of the "Incubator Deconstruction" proposal.
+   o The language of the Incubator's IP Clearance template (*not* the software
+     grant form, only the checklist) is out of date.
+   o A "Poding Bill of Rights" was proposed.  It has not been formally adopted,
+     but discussion influenced the subsequently spawned "What to Expect"
+     document.
+   o A formal ombud position for the Incubator was proposed, and its
+     composition and potential responsibilities were discussed.
+   o Exit interviews for graduated podlings were proposed.  Debate centered on
+     whether responses should/could/must be anonymous.
+ 
+   An audit by the Chair revealed that autogenerated report reminders sent on
+   July 1 failed to make it to the mailing lists of three podlings (Celix,
+   Tajo, VXQuery), presumably because the emails did not make it through
+   moderation.  Manual reminders were sent on July 3 (after subscribing
+   temporarily to the dev lists in question to sidestep moderation).
