 From what I gather, Ken Coar is probably the one on the Incubator PMC 
that has more similar views to mine. On the whole though, there are no 
real big differences, just normal discussions about practical issues.

What should happen with the Incubator is already decided by the board 
when they appointed us. We "just" have to make that happen.

In practice it's the PMC that has the real power. Of course, the chair 
could, in theory, singlehandedly make decisions, but I doubt that the 
board will let that happen if not strictly necessary. ;-)

So the chair is also there to ensure that the PMC works collectively, 
and responds to Apache needs; these are are gather implicitly on the 
lists, and explicitly by the board, to whom he has to report.

As I see it, this PMC is already composed of /special/ people.
