If a podling wants to add anyone who asks to the "initial committers" list,
that's their choice, but it's no longer the only option.  See the May 2012
thread on general@incubator entitled "Open enrollment":

So now we have a situation where the proposal has been modified while the VOTE
is underway and a personnel dispute has arisen.  This is exactly the kind of
situation that the language added to the proposal guide back in June was
intended to avert:

    When the proposal seems finished and some sort of consensus has emerged,
    the proposal should be put to a vote. If the wiki is used to develop the
    proposal, please ensure that the wiki matches the final proposal then add
    a notice to the wiki that development of the document is now complete:

        ---- /!\ '''FINAL''' /!\ This proposal is now complete and has
been submitted for a VOTE. ----

    Embed the final proposal text or a link to a specific revision number of
    the wiki proposal page in the email which kicks off the VOTE thread. If a
    change is required after the vote has been called then the vote must be
    cancelled, the change made, and the vote restarted. Alternatively, Mentors
    will advise on how to make the change once the proposal has been accepted
    if this is appropriate.
