Side note; I have hanged around ASF a long time as many others. A long time 
ago votes were fairly rare and formal. Nowadays, votes are flying left, right 
and center.  What happened to the good'ol "Community Consensus", which didn't 
require votes?

So, are we seeing a new policy being formed??

 1. Get N mentors to back a proposal.
 2. These mentors form the initial PPMC.
 3. The regular "Apache Way" process takes over.
 4. A "mega patch" in form of "initial codebase" constitutes commitment and 
likelihood of committer status.

Maybe not. My point is; Last year's project, Harmony notable exception, 
started with an initial set of committers. *Now* this has been changed. Why? 
Becase instead of 6 person strong (or weak) initial committership list, we 
now see a much stronger initial community, 37 people, many who will probably 
be more active than "freeriders" on other projects? It doesn't make sense...

Over and out.
