Yeah, but it seems a bit artificial to create a PPMC mailing list just 
for this. IMHO having all Project Chairs on the Incubator PMC + anyone 
that is bringing in new codebases on the Incubator PMC list should 
suffice IMHO.

I think it will.

Not much, as they vote correctly, discuss on the list, and get along 
well with other projects. Even better than most other projects we have 
here ;-)

OTOMH there are still two things to watch out:

1 - licensing awareness: it's getting better after a couple of headsup,
       so it should be cleared soon. For this I want to see how they do
       the release.

2 - independent committers: it seems to me that there are not many new
        committers and that the initial core group is still the one
        driving, although I have to check. In any case it's getting
        stronger ties with Cocoon core and Forrest now, so the issue
        is going away too.
