I already read the poddling reports most months, mainly just for my
own interest i don't do anything with what i learn, and most reports
are pretty rosy and lack enough real detail to get much of an idea
about where a poddling is really at. I do agree that it could be could
to update the Incubator reporting. Noel always starts the report with
a couple of paragraphs of summary/overview which i think has been
good, perhaps we just need to extend that and to have other Incubator
PMC members give more input on anything significant they have. I'm not
sure that i get what all this hooha is about though, if a poddling
misses a few reports doesn't that in itself paint a picture of where
the poddling is at? The Incubator policy page has a reasonably concise
list of Minimum Graduation Requirements and most of them aren't that
hard to do, the main one that often holds things up is "Demonstrate an
active and diverse development community". Do we just need to
add/remove/clarify these graduation requirements? We could start more
proactively terminating poddlings that don't look like they're making
it but I'm not sure i understand why we'd want to rush that, what is
the problem with having a poddling incubate for more than a year, its
not like they're eating up resources, and why all this blaming the
mentors?
