Subject Re: Concerted may be in need of help

Apologies for the prior spam.  That was a mishandled list admin email.

As a Concerted mentor, I agree with the concern about lack of activity.  I
think this was a difficult month for the project considering both the
general drop in participation and the typical drop in activity that we
should expect to happen around the end-of-year holidays.  The monthly
reporting schedule implicitly requires that an incubating project show
some kind of demonstrable progress month-to-month.  Still, other podlings
did manage to sustain activity and complete a report during this time.

I see John has already raised concern about lack of activity in the
mentor/shepherd notes.  I just seconded that myself.

Can we consider giving the PPMC a chance to reset and aim to re-establish
steady activity this month?  Beyond that, I don't think there is anything
more the IPMC can do to help right now.  Mentors are already watching over
the state of the project and responding quickly to requests for advice.  I
don't think this is a case where we need to add more mentors.

I agree with the sentiment that pushing a project away only to bring it
back later could be counter-productive.  However, I would interpret a
long-term (multi-month) dormant trend as an indicator that the podling
isn't viable.
