Subject Re: Small but otherwise happy podlings
Date Mon, 09 Jan 2012 20:00:09 GMT
I would like to see the Incubator someday reach the point where
we could DISTRIBUTE our oversight across the podling lists, where
graduation votes are largely ceremonial other than vetting the
language, where release votes happen solely on dev lists, etc.

But we will NEVER get there and still do a responsible job of
oversight until we can get to the point where we can reliably
TRUST the word of a podling mentor about the state of affairs
of a podling.  And if we've never actually read the words of
a mentor summarizing a podling's activities, how are we supposed
to suddenly start trusting them come graduation time?
