no offense, as this is usually the "do it yourself" open source way i
subscribe to... however, i believe the original point was to have
someone _knowledable_ write the reports. hence the typical allusion to
core. i don't think it has to be core, but it should be someone with a
good architectural understanding of BSD and Free in particular... that
way they can filter the core data and sources like cvs-all into
something meaningful to the masses.
i mean... i could just pull all the data together and turn it into a
"report". but i seriously doubt it'd be more useful than just browsing
cvs-all online... so the right person has to do the reporting for it to
actually be of value IMCO.
