Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "December2013" page has been changed by MarvinHumphrey:

Fill out Infrastructure and Miscellaneous sections.

  * Infrastructure
+   * The Incubator dist area is now fully transitioned to
+     Infra is pleased.
  * Miscellaneous
+   * The Incubator experienced a rough cycle for releases.  Several podlings
+     experienced long wait times for IPMC votes.  One release made it out
+     despite IP clearance not having been completed.  Another was improperly
+     released with only two IPMC +1 votes.
+   * The initiative to reform release voting continues.  We achieved consensus
+     for one particular approach and tried it. The approach seems not to have
+     succeeded (though some argue it has not been given enough time).  We are
+     now negotiating a second approach.  We have not yet achieved a
+     breakthrough, but progress is being made and discussions are civil and
+     proceeding at a measured pace rather than overheating as past efforts
+     have.
+   * We've started recruiting non-IPMC shepherds and the new volunteers have
+     brought substantial energy and enthusiasm to the task.
+   * The Chair finished coding up several new tools around reporting which will
+     hopefully make it easier to sustain high report quality into the future.
+     An attempt to recruit a "Report Manager" for this cycle did not yield any
+     volunteers, though.
+   * The Provisionr podling voted to retire and then followed through on
+     completing the retirement guide (a rarity).  Best wishes to the
+     wonderful, wonderful Provisionr people in their future endeavors.
