Completing such a task will be a lot of work, and who knows what complications
and disagreements lie ahead?  We have an incremental solution in front of us
which mitigates some of our most pressing problems: the measured expansion of
Joe Schaefer's successful "experiment" to add PPMC Members who have
demonstrated a thorough understanding of the Apache Way to the IPMC.

I don't support this boil-the-ocean revamp if it blocks the less ambitious
reforms.  An indefinite period where release votes continue to drag on for
weeks is unacceptable.
