Our next quarterly review is in 3 weeks.  We just got a note request
that we submit the report yesterday.  I thought it was odd as well,
but was told that new Podlings submit reports every month for the
first three months.

No, not in July.  But we need to start making progress.  Digging in
and saying "we've always done it this way" rather than giving Apache a
try is not a healthy sign, IMHO.  Or maybe this is just the case of a
couple who decides to get married and then finds out, much to their
sudden distress, that they now must share closet space.
