So then we run into the heart of the matter. Whom is this report being 
generated for?
1. Is it a report the the board? Say tracking delays waiting for license 
feedback? Or are we going after specific publicity or interoperability 
goals ...
2. Is it a report to the "communication committees" (viscomm and 
webcomm) with material for or notice of publicity activities?
3. Is it a report to the regional or task based committees? Describing 
changes in project abilities etc...

To straighten this out we as the incubation committee need to crash a 
few more meeting and see what expectations are, before annoying projects 
with a request for quarterly reports.  I can think of a couple items I 
would like to see (evidence of planning for example), but I have no idea 
if they hold wider appeal.

Alternatively we can canvas the existing incubation projects and see 
what artifacts they already produce and look for communality.
