I think out of what you've listed, and filtering what's done:

Report Manager:
    editorial  -- Assemble list of releases.
    editorial  -- Create podling summary.
    editorial  -- Write narrative, misc, legal, infrastructure, etc. sections.
    mechanical -- Prepare next month's report template.

Shepherd Manager:
    mechanical -- Assign podlings which do not report to "monthly".
    mechanical -- Normalize report formatting
    mechanical -- Send "shepherding" email.
