PMCs that report to the board simply so they have authority to vote on releases, add new committers,
etc..  My proposal is to give podlings the authority to make the releases and add new committers
as long as they have approval of their mentors. It doesn't require a change in bylaws or even,
so far as I can tell, explicit board approval to do this. It might require someone to change
the voting page to clarify that the incubator works differently. Big deal.

Re-read what I've written. I don't believe the board needs to ratify anything. The IPMC has
the ability to re-model itself without requiring a board resolution. What I've suggested is
exactly in line with the resolution that was passed in 2002.
