It cannot, and I don't believe I implied that this would be the case.  
The idea is that the PPMC, with the help of the Mentors, conducts a  
discussion and a vote just as they would if they were a TLP PMC. What  
we're trying to do in the incubator is to give the PPMC the  
opportunity to act like a PMC and this committer discussion and vote  
is one of the most important things to learn.

I guess this would be the responsibility of the Mentors to carry any  
feedback from the incubator PMC vote. During the incubator PMC vote,  
the Mentors will be active in responding to any concerns of the  
incubator PMC.
