I apologize for being absent from these threads for the last month.
Life got busy and one of the things that got dropped was the incubator
general list.

I don't want to rehash everything that's been discussed before, but
here's my opinions as an IPMC member:

I'd prefer that the decision making stays close to the PPMC.  If we
need the IPMC to check off on PPMC decisions, fine.  That should be
possible via the mentors.  But let's not make this any more
bureaucratic than necessary.  Thus I'm in favor of only ONE vote.

Furthermore, I'm not completely convinced by Noel's argument that the
PPMC is a figment of our imagination.  Sorry, Noel, don't mean to pick
on you here. :-)

My point is, if the IPMC choses to delegate committer voting
responsibilities to PPMCs, then the PPMC votes are just as 'binding'
as IPMC votes.  AFAIK, there's no legal barrier for this to happen,
only procedural ones.
