This has been a long thread to go thru for someone absent for a while...

It has been very interesting. I understand Noel's PoV and "it will work, 
because we want to", but personally I find a lot of Justin's arguments 
really "strong" and "right".

If the Proposer controls the Proposal (and not stick it on a freely editable 
Wiki), then isn't it very straight forward?
You feel excluded (I have); Convince the Proposor that you belong.
You feel "piling on" is happening; Ask the Proposer to qualify the selection 
criteria, and have a dialog if you find it "inappropriate".

I mean, who cares if "Company X" starts a podling in ASF Incubator with 400 
employees getting commit access to that project? 

If we change the wording in Graduation Criteria to include "maximum 30% of 
committers from the same company", then that excessive initial PPMC on the 
Proposal quickly becomes a handicap.
