The Office of the President doesn't have any oversight over PMCs, so
strictly speaking the IPMC can proceed with this however it likes on
whatever timetable it sees fit. However, please don't be surprised
if/when we deny requests to Infrastructure because they exceed what we
have available in time/staff/money; we're also likely to push a number
of tasks down to the podling itself.

With my VP Infra/member/IPMC member hats on, I'd prefer seeing the
plan for plugins.nb.o in place before you consider this. As Greg said
elsewhere, I don't think that piece can be ignored - it's vital to the
community, and any agreement would need to be formally agreed to by
the foundation (similar to the contract we have with Sonatype) if the
project moved here. I'd also point out the comments from Ross to the
IPMC about budget and get that squared away before you proceed.
