And we need enough for some objectivity, too.  One mentor is
not enough, IMHO -- insufficient oversight.

Um, I don't think Noel meant that the PPMC *remains*
consisting of just the mentors, but that they're the
bootstrap code for it.

Well, there are podlings with no PPMC, much less a PPMC mailing list.
(Or were; that may have been corrected by now.)

Bleah.  I think you've misinterpreted Noel again.  Only those
*on the PPMC* who are also on the IPMC have binding votes.
So more IPMC members join the PPMC, more binding votes.

Ever hear of delegation?  The IPMC can obviously (well,
obvious to me) override PPMC decisions, but should *not* be
involved in them day-to-day.
