this is reported in the next Incubator board report and if there no objections from the board
they would then be considered non longer IPMC members. So a roster may not 100% accurately
reflect who is actually a IPMC member at a point in time.

I think that without an explicit resignation they must remain IPMC members. The only exception
would be those who have gone emeritus or have passed on. The driver is membership.

An IPMC Member who is not a Member and is no longer subscribed should be consider individually
on private@i.a.o.

The Board evaluates PMCs via roll calls on private@. I’m not aware of cases of PMCs throwing
people off w/o a resignation and as you Justin should be aware the Board goes to the extreme
to prevent it. (The current Board may differ from prior Boards, but let’s not test it!)

I’m for contacting and asking, but not for forcing.

Thanks Greg.
