Modifying a vote that has started is a slippery slope.  (The same is true for
reusing version numbers: ANY change to something that has been tagged must get
a new version number - no matter how small the change may be.)  One solution is
to restart the vote.  Another is to run a parallel vote for the delta/amendment.

Concretely, can't you just start a thread on private@ saying "The would-be-PPMC
has consensus on inviting X as a committer"?  This would allow you to invite X
to be a committer shortly after the original vote ends.
