Not sure what to make of that comment or the smiley at the end, i've
tried to do this change as gently as possible, can you live with the
current text or do you want an update?

I was tempted to update that too while editing the new committer text
but as we hadn't discussed it just left it and had planned a new
thread to discuss changing it. I can see the logic in having it work
the same way as the board notifications of new PMC members, but that
also feels a little unnecessary as the PPMC doesn't have any real
standing or binding votes on much at all so i can also appreciate the
Incubator PMC just leaving them to it and staying out of their way.
