Sometimes its good to be new in a project, and able to ask the "of course"
questions.

http://incubator.apache.org/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html

Does not have a thing called "shepherd". Seems like a good idea though.

Then let me see if I misunderstood the sequence. I thought every incubator
project submit its own report internally to incubator, and that is then
combined into the board report.

I would really prefer that every incubator project had its own file (or
directory if you prefer), it has 2 advantages:
1) the file only contain information relevant for that project.
2) it is much easier for IPMC to determine, which mentors have acted on a
specific project report.

the board report should then be assembled via a tool, and IPMC (the chair)
can add the verbal missing parts.

but its just my opinion, and if incubator is used to work differently, I
will not be the one to propose big changes.
