I don't know all the communities around ASF, but what I have seen is that 
the "acceptance"/"decline" happens after the public vote. Entries to PMCs 
seems more like "private vote" -> accept/decline -> "welcome" in the 
communities I know of.

Mind you, my own opinion in the matter differs from how things are done, for 
instance; IMHO either the vote is public OR private, and if the latter then 
don't have the charade on the public list. That would simplify things at 
Incubator as well.

  1. [Discuss] on private@podling
  2. [Vote] on private@podling
  3. [Vote] on private@incubator
  4. [Accept/Decline] in private mail
  5. [Announce/Welcome] in public@podling
