Elected by being nominated to the iPMC through an iPMC member's nomination
of them (same as everywhere).

Correct all around.  One more observation. is yet
another committee, but one with special properties; <INS>/<DEL> fledgling
projects into the foundation.  As such, it's sort of a committee of the
whole - we need all the /willing/ members to step up and contribute as
they like for us to successfully grow the ASF without steering too far
off course.

So yes - the iPMC voted that this be it's process w.r.t. members.  Not
necessarily applicable to the typical PMC, but we a the most diverse
group at the foundation and have encouraged that to continue.  We hope
every member who is wanting to grow (or wanting to throttle the growth)
of the foundation shows up here where it matters.
