Some DPL did not made quite enough status update. I think it is
important to make monthly status update about every problems you are
working on, even if you have nothing final to report.  

This relieve the others developers of the frustration of waiting for events
without any way to make them happen. At least they know something is
happening and thus are more patient. This reduce tension in the project.

That is in part why I proposed to experiment with "observers".
Certainly I would try to have someone taking care I do monthly status
update.
