I don't have any major objections to this, but I will note that
reports stopped being sent to FESCo because at some point they were
kind of redundant.  "Still working on thing X" every week isn't really
something that needs to be sent.  So I would avoid a weekly deadline
and maybe just post minutes/summaries of the meetings the groups have
when there is actually something to communicate.
