  • Determining Active Project Status
    • This is a status update on this initiative.
    • I have completed the first round of requests for all Flagship, Labs, and Incubator projects.

    • I have gone ahead and re-sent my request for a 3rd time to un-responsive Labs Project Leaders.
    • The deadline to reply back to my request is today, Friday, 26th of July.
