Ok its been nearly a week and there is overwhelming support for doing
this so I have gone ahead and made an update to the PPMC guide to
reflect this. The text is a copy of what is already there for voting
in a new PPMC member updated as necessary for being a committer. The
new text reads:

Any member of the PPMC can propose a new committer. The proposal
should be discussed in private on the PPMC private alias, with a
subject line of [DISCUSS] Joe Bob as committer. If there is consensus
that the proposed member is suitable, then there should be a formal
vote in the PPMC private alias, with the subject line of [VOTE] Joe
Bob as committer. The [VOTE] message should be forwarded to the IPMC ( to notify them that the vote is
underway. If the vote is successful, the proposer should send a
message to the PPMC private alias, with the subject line of
[VOTE][RESULT] Joe Bob as committer.

Note that to be successful the vote requires at least one +1 from a
poddling mentor, or, if no mentors are available from an Incubator PMC
