Or rather, entirely untrue.  As I mentioned before, members can easily
become iPMC members by simply messaging private@i.a.o, who in turn will
ask the board for an ack (as all other committees do after a vote).  And
they need to request this themselves, and then subscribe themselves.

But for a non-Member, it's entirely untrue.  It's always been required
to vote on adding an iPMC member for non-ASF members, just as at every
other PMC at the ASF.

The mentors of a project, as Leo hints, are as flexible as "add me if
you'll have me" or "I'm in purgatory and looking to lighten my workload,
and don't have the cycles to really do a decent job of mentoring right
now".  It's that simple to be added or removed from the mentor list,
since a mentor doesn't have specific responsibilities.
