Ditto to everything above.  The 2 suggestions, we can point out the 3rd
bullet can be lazy concensus if 3 binding +1's were already cast in the
podling (by incubator PMC members) - that Vote essentially becomes a
Notice to the private@incubator list (for them to raise an objection if
absolutely necessary).  If 72 hours pass with no objection, we can call
them elected by the PMC votes on the podling list.

The other suggestion - you could renumber these based from 0, since the
[discuss] is the one completely optional thing in the list, and the
process of discussing different potential committers should be an ongoing
dialog on the podling's private list :)
