As other people have said, PPMC members (that are not also IPMC members)
do not have binding votes, neither for releases nor for inviting new
committers/PPMC members. The "binding" bit lies with the IPMC, which can
revoke any formal decision made by the PPMC.

That hardly ever happens (it's most likely when there are problems with
a podling's first few releases), which is why you get the impression
that the PPMC can make binding decisions. In this respect, there's no
practical difference between the current IPMC model and the proposed
pTLP model.

Of course, when it comes to /technical/ decisions, there's no such thing
as a vote, so the term "binding" does not apply. Consensus, of one form
or another, always rules: and the IPMC or mentors can't meddle in this case.
