Gee, this is getting very cryptic.

How about i just ask a straight question...

Does the vote need to happen in view of the general public
for that to be considered a legal decision of the project PMC?

Answering myself, i say no: whatever way the PMC does it 
is entirely up to them. 
Does anyone have a different answer?

The "link" that we provide is the date that the vote
occurred on our pmc list. Perhaps we should also provide
the MessageId. So no, i don't see a disconnect other than
the work link is a bit ambiguous. I take it to mean:
"provide a way to correlate the PMC decision with this action
of creating a new committer account".
