Who are the set of people who may add themselves to this list?

I'd like to see as many as possible, but putting strict requirements
(like this) only adds unnecessary red tape.

In my mind, if a project asks to be released from incubation and
hasn't shown any participation by any ASFer, then I'm much less
inclined to vote in favor of release.

Yuck, this is terminology overkill. We really need to slow down the
introduction of new words to our glossary, we're going to make the
lawyers jealous. :)

How about this:
    The PPMC starts with every Incubator PMC person who wants on
    the PPMC. New PPMC members are then voted in by the current
    PPMC members.
