Hmm. This is different from what stdcxx has been practicing (we
never notified our PPMC since all PPMC members are committers and
the active ones participate on -dev). What would be the purpose
of this notification? OTOH, I could see that it might be important
for a podling to notify a sponsoring TLP's PMC. My understanding
is that only podlings on the TLP track have a PPMC and all others
use their sponsoring TLP project's PMC. Isn't that correct?

IMO, the PPMC/committer question needs to be clarified. In fact,
if my understanding about TLPs and PMC/PPMCs is correct, this
could not be correct.

Without clarifying this I wouldn't know whose votes to count :)
