I'll tell you why.  Because it isn't pretending.  And although it is
respectful to include the Geronimo community in the decision process, it is
also important.  PPMC does not stand for "Practice" PMC.  It would be a PMC
subcommittee, tasked with the oversight of that particular part of the
overall project.  Geronimo PPMC must take that responsibility.  Geronimo is
intended to be a PMC.  If/when Geronimo leaves the Incubator, the PPMC,
minus the rest of the Incubator PMC, would become the Geronimo PMC.  They
have a responsibility to demonstrate that they can provide governance.

Jeremy isn't saying that a decision doesn't have to be made.  He is saying
that it should be made by the Geronimo PPMC.  And he's correct.  James said
the same thing earlier.
