Thanks.  To be clear, you're not the Dave to whom I referred.  And I
appreciate your offer.  :-)

I agree that the community is responsible, and have said so.  If the
Commuity doesn't step up, I don't know that I would want the Mentor to write
the report for them; certainly not a glowing one.  The Commuity needs to
learn to follow ASF procedure, and the Board requires quarterly reports.
But projects come to us in part to build and maintain a vibrant community,
not just to participate in our brand and infrastructure, and active Mentors
can help with that, and advise the PMC when there are issues.  If a Mentor
makes a note that the Community hasn't file a report, then at least we know
that someone is paying attention and participating.

At least that's how I see it.

due, is crystal clear

Why do we have Marvin?  People forget, get distracted, have other things to
do.
