Ask people to self nominate - I imagine often inactive commiters won't
put themselves forward, removing any issue. Then maybe a review of the
list by the the mentors and proposed PMC Chair. If there are issues it
can be discussed in the community and if theres disagreement then
vote. I imagine most of the time it won't come to voting.
