Most of the older projects at the Foundation do not have PMC ==
Committer. Notably, httpd. The notion that committers are automatically
PMC is a fairly new innovation. As it happens, it's an innovation that I
wholeheartedly support and recommend, but it's a minority of projects
that have this policy. If you follow board reports, you'll notice that
PMC additions and Committer additions are seldom coincident.
