There is such a group already - even though that might be a small
percentage of the IPMC membership (because that PMC is big), there is
a sizable group that does take supervision seriously.

I don't think a reboot is needed. Some specific points need improving
(how to cope with missing reports and inactive mentors, more efficient
reporting to the board, clarifying our docs) but that doesn't mean the
incubator is broken.

Working in small, concrete, reversible steps is usually the best way
to get things done at the ASF - let's just do that.


P.S. Sensationalistic bloggers: if you write about how broken our
Incubator is, you  owe me a beer for this subject line. Thanks.
