We should use our judgment to ensure a collaborative environment without
undue overhead.  But it would be unfair, for example, to deliberately hold a
vote when someone whom you know is opposed is going to be off-line.

The Board has declared that 72 hours must pass between an ACK for PMC
membership and when the person is officially a member of the PMC.  That is
their perogative, since the Board determines whom is on a PMC.
