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.
