There is no need to "notify the PPMC".

PMC == Project Management Committee == the people who make decisions
for a project == the people with binding votes in public decisions
== the people on the dev list we listen to when they vote.

Anyone not on the dev list is not really on the PMC, period.
They should be officially removed from the PMC and placed in
emeritus status until they care to return.

This is often confused with the "pmc" list, which is simply a
private list with a confusing name that I will change to "private"
as soon as I get a spare day to run the scripts.
