Subject PMC chair vs. reorg proposals
Date Sun, 05 Feb 2012 10:08:44 GMT

I find it unfortunate that the PMC chair nominations got turned into a
debate about the future of the Incubator, especially when the original
reason to consider a new chair were fairly minor issues in timely
handling of PMC mechanics. As a fellow PMC chair I think it's
troublesome that people seem to expect that a VP title is needed to
push forward major changes; it's not. In my opinion the primary role
of the PMC chair in discussions like these is to make sure that all
opinions are heard and to help reach consensus where none exists.
Often the best way to do that is to step back and let the discussion
flow before taking a stand.

Thus, since Noel is willing to continue as the chairman, I propose
that he should do so, possibly with Benson and/or others as delegates
to help deal with the volume of day-to-day issues.

Meanwhile others who wish to drive the incubation process to new
directions, be it inside the Incubator or not, can and should continue
to do so. AFAICT none of these proposals require the added authority
of a VP title.
