Subject RE: Incubator PMC/Board report for July 2011 (ooo-dev@incubator.apache.org)

I did some modest streamlining.  I didn't alter the questions.  I did not touch the "How has
the project developed ... " question.

I am not sure which of these topics may be from guidance on providing the report.

Alexandro, will you be making the changes along the lines you suggest?

On Friday I can add the latest PPMC summary and anything about the size of ooo-dev on the
community growth question or whatever other title we give that.

 - Dennis

PS: My name, "Dennis," is Irish, not French or Spanish.  Not to be confused with "Den[n]ise"
although I was called "Denny" when I was a child.  My sisters still call me that.  (And I
shall remind myself that Alexandro is not pronounced like Alex when we have an opportunity
to meet.)

Judging from the other reports I will try to make it more consice. For
example:
Explaining that is our first report, seems a bit verbose.

Also avoid the Q&A format and instead draft it as action points. The core
action ponits would be,
- Asset migration
- governance structure
- general project setup

Under migration we can put new website, wiki, etc. OOo code revision.
Under governance structure, we can put we did the initial commiter draft
with some of the numbers Dennise has report.
General project setup we can talk about the OOo site in Apache.

So in essence same information, but different format to make it more
objective and to the point.
