Hi Martin,

Please see my answers in line:

Yes we did, see [1] for the announcement. It's fairly recent but we've been
monitoring this particular committer already for a little while. Also note
that these mentions in the incubator reports come from ourselves, we wanted
to demonstrate our ability to attract more committers. However I'm not aware
of any IPMC concern regarding our diversity.

The PPMC has only been installed recently. How can we ascertain that

The PPMC wasn't non-functioning, it's actually been functioning pretty well,
it was just not elected yet. All decisions were taken by the committers who
are now part of the PPMC as all PPMC do, it was just a bit more "in the
open". I think it has taken a while to formalize our PPMC because after the
incubation started the IPMC wanted to see how we were going to organize
ourselves (worries with 2 different code donations). And we've continued
this way for a while just because it was working pretty well and our mentors
were aware and happy about this evolution. I don't think there's any
dysfunction to see here, just a slightly different evolution path. We've
also been working on this and talking with different IPMC members about
graduation (including our mentors of course) and again, I don't think there
are too many concerns regarding us being ready (but anybody can correct me
if I'm wrong).

As for ascertaining the current PPMC, you will have to refer to the
development mailing-list. It's probably a bit more tedious but you'll get a
good idea of how our community has been working so far.
