Subject Re: Draft MXNet Podling report for Aug-2017
Date Wed, 02 Aug 2017 07:27:52 GMT
Following up on this - the first 3 reports in a new podling, or a new TLP
PMC, are made monthly. Then it moves to quarterly.

So MXNet doesn't have to report monthly again until it graduates.

The quarterly cycle for MXNet is:

   - January, April, July, October
