At the risk of seeming trite, +1, but ...

This lengthy proposal shifts the supervision responsibility of
podlings from an big IPMC to a set of mentors approved by the board at
the advice of a small iPMC. In other words, a project is born when
three? foundation members, or others deemed appropriate by the small
iPMC, are constituted as a project by the board, with one (the
recently invented champion) as the chair.

It seems to me that this ups the ante quite a bit on the accidental
argument I started about mentor qualifications. The board absolutely
does not want to have to provide direct supervision all the podlings:
that's what the Board's formal feedback to the IPMC just now is about.
So, under this scheme, the particular mentors that make up the initial
PMC of a project are the ones the Board is trusting, and if any step
down, they absolutely need to be replaced.

I support proposing this structure to the Board, but I wouldn't be
terribly surprised if the answer is 'no'.
