Subject Re: Question about the PMC structure for graduating projects
Date Wed, 04 Apr 2007 15:55:01 GMT
Hi Matt,

The last official act of the PPMC is to graduate the project from the  
incubator. By that time, it should have learned how to govern itself.

While there is no policy, I believe that graduation is a good time to  
take stock of the PPMC membership and committers and decide who will  
be there after graduation.

I'd suggest you have the discussion about the future composition of  
the PMC as a group, using the dev list as a vehicle. You might find  
out that there are committers who would like to take part in the PMC.

The Incubator policy says that the mentors are representatives of the  
sponsoring project, and if they want to fully participate in the  
project they have to earn it just like anyone else.

It's up to the PPMC. Graduation is a good time to correct oversights  
that benefit the project going forward.
