-1 to that description.  There *is* an implicit automatic process, but
it presumes the Mentor == ASF Member (and all members may join the iPMC
with a ping-ack).  Veto to that interpretation - you were right... needs
to be updated.

Not necessarily old, but it has the implicit assumption.  If we rephrase
as "Mentor must be an iPMC member", and change 'automatic' reference into
instructions to an ASF Member that they may email the iPMC with a request
to be added, then things become clearer.
