The only individuals empowered to act on the foundation's behalf are
members of committees.  With the exception of board committees which
are empowered to form subcommittees, all such individuals must be
ratified (either by resolution or our favorite ACK game) by the BoD.

A vote by 3 PPMC members is therefore not binding, not unless the board
is prepared to ack/nak all appointments to PPMC's within Incubator.

Again, I still am not suggesting we want to take this one way or another.
