While I second that in general, and I have argued (unsuccessfully) on  
the incubator list against arbitrary size constraints for graduating  
podlings, still in theory a PMC min size comes from the need to have a  
sustainable quorum to vote on releases. If it can get at least 3  
people to vote, it should be fine.

Otherwise +1 - one size does not fit all and Apache should (and does)  
accommodate different size projects.
