-        <p>The Chair must remember to send the board a status report of the
-Incubator Project.
-        <p>The dates of the meetings and the months in which to send in a report
-can be found in the committers directory under <code>board/</code> .
-        <p>It's <em>important</em>that the report is sent <em>at
least</em>two days before the scheduled meeting.
-        </p>
-        <p>The Chair should also ensure that the Incubating projects have prior
-notice of this so that they can send in their Incubation Report. It's
-advisable to ask them at least 3 weeks prior the meeting, so that the
-Incubator Project can review and discuss them.
-        <p>Here is a board report boilerplate:
-        <pre>Status report for the Apache Incubator Project 
-    * Noteable happening's in the Incubator 
-    * What code releases have been made? [since the last report] 
-    * Any new projects in process of being accepted? 
-    * Any legal issues to bring to the board? 
-    * Any cross-project issues that need to be addressed? 
-    * Any problems with committers, members, etc? 
-    * Plans and expectations for the next period

+The Incubator <a href="">reports</a>
monthly to the Apache <a
+href="">Board of Directors</a>.  The report
itself is the collaborative effort of
+many Incubator contributors, but the Chair is ultimately responsible for ensuring that it
is filed.  </p>
+          <p>
+The Board appreciates receiving the IPMC report:
+          </p>
+          <ul>
+            <li>on time</li>
+            <li>in a consistent format</li>
+            <li>with an accurate summary of the state of the reporting podlings</li>
+          </ul>
+          <p>
+The "runbook" for managing the preparation of the report is implemented as a script which
prints out documentation,
+instructions, literal commands, due dates, etc:
+          </p>
+          <ul>
+            <li><a href=""></a></li>
+          </ul>
+          <p>
+Many of the tasks documented in the runbook may be attended to by either the Chair or a designee
such as a "Report
+Manager", but it's the Chair who is accountable for overseeing the process.
