These should be

 * the people on the initial list of developers for the proposal that was sent to the incubator
and voted on by its PMC

 * the people that were added since

Off-hand I don't recall what the process for adding people to the PPMC is. I'm not confident
we have one. I'm sure someone around here knows :)

I also don't know about "official" records of PPMC membership. A "PPMC" is less "official"
than a "PMC". Its mostly a private mailing list with some people on it. A mailing 
list which should not be used except for really sensitive stuff. And the people on it are
the people that'd have to deal with that sensitive stuff.

The people that have access to the files on minotaur are the ASF members. Probably the main
(I think, only) reason that this stuff isn't accessible to eg a list its 
subscribers is technological hassle to make that work. I'm sure apmail could provide specific
mbox files to specific people on request, though the request probably should 
be accompanied with a good reason :-)
