The fact that it is by calendar quarters is an arbitrary choice. I 
tended to go by quarters for simplicity (so the October report would 
describe the situation for Q3: July, August, September). Jan probably 
usually sent a report that was more up-to-date, i.e., reflecting recent 
events too.

The difference is only 10-15 days, but those days can be eventful ones. 
For example, if the October report describes Q3 only, it would have to 
state that a release candidate for OpenOffice 4.1.2 is not available, 
since we had it on 2 October. But since it is important news, it can 
probably fit in the October report too.

There are no precise rules, as far as I know, about the precise period a 
report should cover: the Chair is expected to describe the "latest 
quarter", and this does not need to be clarified further.
