Subject Re: Incubator PMC/Board report for August 2011 (ooo-dev@incubator.apache.org)
Date Tue, 09 Aug 2011 12:02:40 GMT
Graham,

reads excellent to me. I would suggest you add it immediately to the
incubator wiki:
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/August2011

It can be edited there - mentors can sign it off there too.

Cheers
Christian
