I strongly suggest that you include all committers who have demonstrated
sustained participation in the project in the PMC.

If they decline to participate, you can strike them from that list before
the resolution goes to the board.  But a PMC is the 'owner' and trustee
of the code, and all sustained contributors should have a voice there.

Even at httpd, we have only a 3-6 mos sustained activity requirement to
obtain commit access, and an additional 6 mos sustained activity reqm't
to become a PMC member.  In the past 7 or 8 years, only a tiny handful
of individuals declined to become a PMC member for very specific reasons.
And httpd is considered the extreme end of the spectrum, many incubator
podlings are adding folks to committer + PPMC from the moment they've
shown sustained activity.
