Maybe we can extend podlings.xml with a reporting section.
This would need to define which quarterly shedule to use for each podling.
It could also have a "monthly" override flag with an end-date.
This would work for both initial monthly reporting, and potentially
for monthly exit reporting (there was some talk of requiring monthly
reporing for projects nearly ready to graduate) - just set a date far
into the future.
If the end-date was omitted, it could be derived from the project start date.

I think this data would generally only need to be set once, and
everything could be generated from it.

However, at present the Reporting Schedule does act as a cross-check
of podlings.xml.
Would it matter if this cross-check were lost?

That something is committee-info.txt.

However, that only sends e-mails to the PMC chair, which is not
entirely suitable here.
