Hmmm, no-one bothered.

So as usual, Clutch automatically adds those to
this month's set of projects to report.

Also i commenced this month's reporting template
on the Wiki.

The ones that might seem to be in error are:
OpenOffice.org
Kafka
Oozie
Deft
ODFToolkit
Giraph

The reason that you are scheduled to report this
month is because you are still listed in the
"monthly" section of:
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/ReportingSchedule

It is up to each project to decide when you are scheduled
and to maintain that page.

Normally projects would move themselves onto the Quarterly
schedule after their initial stint. Of course any project
can choose to provide additional reports.
