Not that I know of.

We don't. What I put into the report is what I think is important for  
the board to know about OpenJPA. I don't track others' reports with  
the same degree of interest.

Dive away.

In Apache, each project is run by the PMC with some absolute rules and  
some guidelines; and the rest is up to the project. If too little  
information is provided by the project to the board, the board asks  
the project to improve. But the board really tries hard to stay out of  
the way of projects. It would be considered micromanaging the project  
for the board to require statistics, but not micromanaging to ask for  
reporting new committers and PMC members.

Regards,

Craig
