Board Report

The Incubator reports monthly to the Apache Board of Directors. The report itself is the collaborative effort of many Incubator contributors, but the Chair is ultimately responsible for ensuring that it is submitted on time.

The Board appreciates receiving the IPMC report to be: - on time - in a consistent format - an accurate summary of the state of the reporting podlings - include multiple Mentor signoff on each report

The "runbook" for managing the preparation of the report is implemented as a script which prints out documentation, instructions, literal commands, due dates, etc. in report_runbook.py

Many of the tasks documented in the runbook may be run by either the Chair or a delegate Report Manager. However, it’s the Chair who is accountable for overseeing the process.

The report draft is worked on the Incubator wiki.

Incubator board reports are organised by year and month. To create a new report, copy the MonthYear template and correctly rename it. Add and link the new temple to the list of reports on the front page. Currently, members of the IPMC and Podling PMCs have permission to edit pages in the Reports section of the wiki. The permissions to that section will need to be updated when new podlings are added or retired. When submitting a final report to the board, make sure to mark the report as read-only and mark it as submitted at the top of the page, so that future accidental edits are mot missing from the board report. The draft reports may vary a little from the final Board report. The published Incubator Board reports can be found here.
