Thinking more about this, there are three components I could really do
with:

 * dev list address
 * project name
 * board meeting dates

I can scrape the code to identify the board meeting date from Marvin
(assuming I can find him). You've given me the dev list addresses, which
is great. It would be nice (but not necessary though) to have the
project names in the same report_due_*.txt file, e.g.
shindig-dev@incubator.apache.org|Shindig. How achievable is that?

Then I'll script the rest.
