A sample email would be helpful here.

Is this an HTTP redirect in .htaccess file?

 From what I remember from when Geronimo graduated, a TLP needs to be  
approved by the board, so the PPMC needs to create a proposal  
including a proposed PMC chair and send that to the board.  A  
graduating project may also want to send out a press release, which  
needs to be cleared with the PRC.
