Actually on the projects that I have previously mentored, we had  
PPMCs.   We did not have a PMC chair until the project graduated.    
So we are discussing whether having a chair for the PPMC is a good  
idea or not, and and my thinking on this was "it would be good  
practice".    But now I am starting to think that maybe the good  
practice that is needed is how to work without a chair or official  
leader.   If you put that person in from the start, then there is  
never an opportunity to learn that you can function without that person.
