The 'standard' practice is that the PPMC is moved forward to the new TLP 
project's PMC. It has also been 'standard' that the committers are kept 
as-is. However, some communities have arranged for 'clean up' operations 
prior to the graduation proposal in collaboration with the Incubator PMC. 
AFAIK, this is done in discussion with the people involved to limit any bad 
feelings. End of the day, the purpose has been to keep the 'active' 
community. But there are no policy in place (AFAIK).
Discussions has occured whether 'previous to ASF active' people should be 
committers or not. I don't think there are any definite conclusion on that, 
and handled case by case.

Personally, I am of the opinion that all committers should be PMC members, but 
it is for each PMC to decide how they handle questions like these.

I hope that helps.
