I would do it if I was on the PPMC of a podling and lack of sign-offs was
affecting progress.  There will often be obstacles to progress in a
podling and project’s life and making sure the podling has people
passionate enough to deal with uncomfortable situations is probably a good

In fact, late in the Flex podling’s life, we did have trouble getting
enough a third IPMC vote because our mentors got a bit busy with other
stuff.  We had 3 good mentors (out of 4) that had voted on prior
incubating releases which made it easier to get the IPMC approval vote.
But this time we couldn’t get a third vote so we pestered the mentors who
hadn’t voted.  One never responded and the other eventually responded that
they were just too busy and we would need to get that 3rd vote from the
larger IPMC which we did.

As long as there is a clear process for a PPMC to get unstuck, you
probably don’t need to worry about rules about activity levels and
oversight from the IPMC.
