I wouldn't worry too much about this. We review the reports during the
board meetings. I think we have plenty of time and opportunity to handle
more reports. But it does mean that I'm going to be much more firm on the
PMCs getting reports in with sufficient time *before* the meeting, so the
directors have time to review the reports before the meeting.

The Board *would* prefer to see more TLPs rather than complicated
structures under one large PMC. The problem here is based on one PMC
trying to oversee way too many projects. Partitioning should help.
