Subject Re: [DRAFT] - Incubator Board Report March 2016
Date Tue, 08 Mar 2016 04:39:58 GMT
I've moved the podlings that had no report submitted to non-reporting and
marked them as monthly.  I'm especially concerned about iota and Johnzon,
one a brand new podling (maybe they shouldn't have reported this month?)
and the other a podling that was trying to graduate.  I'll reach out to
those communities separately.

I left the following reports in for now, without sign off.  They should be
removed before we submit the report to the board unless one of their
mentors can sign off on the reports:

- Kudu
- Myriad

Both are fine reports, so shouldn't be an issue to sign off on them.

Note that I signed off on the CommonsRDF report, but to be clear to
everyone, it is an acknowledgement that the podling is in danger of
retiring.

This month seems to have been a pretty big swing in mentors on projects.  I
think everyones realizing how busy they are.  For those mentors who have
resigned, if you could please update podlings.xml to indicate your
resignation that would be appreciated.

For any podling that may be suffering from a lack of mentorship, I would
suggest to please reach out to the IPMC for support, we have many trained
members who may be willing to give you a hand.
