Subject Reliability of the podling reports schedule and list of incubator projects
Date Thu, 26 Jun 2008 18:01:44 GMT
Hi,

With my (shiny new ;-) board hat on, I'm following up on a a concern
expressed at yesterday's board meeting.

It seems like the schedule of incubator podling reports to the board,
as well as the list of incubating projects at [2] is not very reliable
- probably due to the well-known "redundant and scattered metadata"
problem.

For example, it seems like Pig had never reported before, although
it's been incubating for a few months, as it was missing from the wiki
reporting schedule page [1] (*blush* - I'm a mentor for that
project...).

Recent discussions also show that Rat is missing from the incubator
home page, and the status of Composer seems unclear.

Having a master status file and generating the reporting schedule,
project status overview (including mentors names) might be a nice way
to have a traceable single point of maintenance for this data. And/or
maybe deriving part of this info from svn setup and authorizations.

Assuming there's agreement on the problem, do we have any volunteers
for working on that?

-Bertrand
