Subject Re: Final draft of IPMC report for January 2015
Date Wed, 14 Jan 2015 16:48:24 GMT
*ahem*, I did sign off on both reports.
However, my wiki access was fubared at the time, so I asked if anyone 
from the Ranger project could put a check mark next to my name. This has 
apparently not happened. I have also signed off on the Corinthia report.

With regards,
Daniel.

>    P. Taylor Goetz (ptgoetz):
>
>      NPanday has missed the last two reports (last report August 2014). One
>      of two mentors are engaged and encouraging the podling to make a final
>      release before retiring (last release was on 2011-05-17). However, there
>      is little PPMC/Committer involvement with only 2 PPMC members showing
>      involvement on the dev@ list in the past year. Also confirmed that a
>      report reminder email was received by the dev@ list for each of the last
>      missed reporting periods as well at the current period.
>
>      It's clear that mentors past and present have attempted to help the
>      NPanday project grow to a viable size -- at least enough to approve a
>      release, new Committer/PPMC Member, or even decide to retire -- without
>      success.
>
>      The main warning signs appear to be:
>
>      * Inability to reach community consensus (barely 2 acive Committer/PPMC
>        Members, making 3 +1s for any vote very difficult)
>      * Inability to perform releases
>      * Inability to grow the community to a viable size
>
>      The issues listed above do not indicate a lack of mentor involvement,
>      but rather a community in decline.
