New projects report monthly for their first 3 months, then move to a
quarterly cycle.  If things line up properly, that means they end up with 4
months in a row of reporting.  It's a way for us to check early on if they
are holding on for the ride, so to speak.

That's why you don't get emails from "me" every month.

If you miss a month, you need to report the following.  If you miss too
many months, we get worried.
