It is not intended as a threat: as I say, I don't know how Nokia will
decide whether to continue funding positions, or renew individuals'
contracts (hell, I haven't even seen the contracts, nor do I want to).

However, the point of this discussion is to try and find 1) how to get
people to report their status, 2) whether the wiki is the right place
and - as Dave's raised - 0) why we're reporting status in the first

I know I've certainly been very frustrated by the lack of updates on
the wiki when trying to organise a sprint meeting so that minutes and
documentation can be accurate and comprehensive. If the participants
aren't taking it seriously, or it's not proving valuable, or it's not
being done for some other reason, why should I give up _my_ free time
to try and shepherd a flawed process?
