Bill Shannon said, in comments on the draft document:
"I still don't think there should be a requirement to submit
anything if nothing has changed. who's going to detect failure to
submit? the PMO? if the PMO sends the quarterly "why haven't you
submitted anything" message, we'll just use that as the reminder to
say "nothing has changed". I don't want to be required to proactively
say "nothing has changed" every quarter. who's going to sign up for
doing that forever for JSRs that are no longer being used?"
I still think that starting out with the assumption that people need
not report unless they have something to say will lead to people
ignoring this requirement. The PMO can use its judgment about who to
remind, but I really do want the "there's nothing to report this quarter"
messages so we don't have to guess whether or not we're being ignored.
