Subject PPMCs and oversight
Date Fri, 26 Dec 2003 10:03:01 GMT

Now that we have PPMCs, I am in the process of updating our policy document.

In particular, we have decided that not all PMC members have to be on 
every PPMC, but just ones that want to help out, that are thus Mentors.

This brings us to a potential oversight issue.

Let's assume that a project gets accepted and that the PPMC is thus 
formed. If being on the PPMC is not compulsory for PMC members, then we 
may assume that nobody goes there, or that if someone does, he may not 
be there after some time, and the PMC doesn't know it.

The current mechanism assumes that designated Mentors are the ones that 
have decided to be there, and we may assume that is there are enough 
Mentors, they will be there or tell us that they cannot do it anymore.

If we don't have explicit Mentors... how does it work?

MHO is that we don't remove the Mentors as designated now, but that in 
the same time we don't prevent anyone from "mentoring" the project 
without having to necessarily be listed as Mentors. If PMC members want 
to be listed, they just list themselves on the project's index page, 
nothing asked.

Does this make sense?
