Well, PMCs are formed by the board when a project moves to top level
status.  PPMCs are formed for an incubating project, and exactly how
that works tends to differ a bit between projects.  Some mentors start
off with just the mentors on the PPMC, and then invite project members
as time goes on (or that's the impression I've gotten).  Others just
start with the whole group of committers plus the mentors on the PPMC
(that's what we did with Abdera).
