Subject Re: Report Manager for April

Hi,

I can volunteer to do RM for next month.  I can also do the shepherding
report for two podlings as usual.  The only reason I missed updating the
page last month was due to some weather issues/power issues near me.  By
the time I got to the file with my results, the email had already gone out.

- John
