Subject manage the ReportingSchedule
Date Thu, 20 Oct 2011 08:00:58 GMT
The Incubator ReportingSchedule needs better management.

At the moment it is manually maintained.

Podlings are expected to manage their entry.
Add to it when they enter the Incubator, tweak it
after their initial three months, and remove themselves
when they graduate.

Every six months i set up the next batch of templates
for each monthly report,
and the list of reporting dates at the
section "Board Reports".

At the beginning of each month, hopefully before
projects start adding their reports, i add the list
of that month's projects by following the instructions
in the monthly templates. (And sometimes mess up.)

Clutch reads the main ReportingSchedule and generates
some data files to keep track of which projects are
due to report.
These are used by the automated system "marvin" to
remind projects to report.

This reporting stuff is getting harder to manually manage.
We now have sixty (yes 60) podlings currently in incubation.

Can anyone see a way to improve this process?
