There are two important steps that need to happen early:
1) Add project to Reporting Schedule
2) Add project to Incubation Table

(The latter is documented as part of the "Status page" task.
Perhaps we should separate it - just add an entry to the
site-author/projects/index.xml source, and do the Status page
later sometime.)

These two enable IPMC members to know which project
is due to report, and who are their mentors.
Without this information, the IPMC has been losing track.
These are the two very simple tasks that enable Clutch
to start helping.

The order for the rest of the tasks does not matter.

Thanks, if those get quoted as templates, then this order helps.
