I have no idea where that 50% stuff came from.  The goal of having at
least three independent members of the project PMC (*committers* has no
decison-making role in the foundation, even when committers == PMC)
is to make sure someone is able to veto stuff that would get
us in trouble.  50% would be nice, but not necessary unless we are
talking about the ASF board.

I don't know if this should even apply to code that is being
inserted into an existing project.
