For donations intended for landing in other projects, such as Maven, that is
the reason why the PPMC consists of that PMC, plus the committers, plus the
Incubator PMC.  When the project leaves the incubator, the Incubator PMC
would leave the PPMC, leaving the PPMC in the hands of the other PMC.  At
that point, the PPMC could be left to operate as a PMC sub-committee or
subsumed by the PMC.  If this PPMC approach works, it could serve as a model
for resolving some of the concerns about umbrella projects.
