I'm asking two things of the Incubator: (a) police the lack of
attention by mentors on projects
that have been incubating for years, and (b) setting the expectation
that a podling produces AT THE VERY MINIMUM a credible plan that they
are executing on which will lead to graduation at some point.

In this month's incubator report, I'm seeing an increase in podling
reports that contain steps needed for graduation.  Awareness is a
great first step.
