If the requester is not a member, IPMC also has to discuss and vote based on contributions,
interest to help out just like any other PMC. Such requests to join should go to the private
list. See [1]  "Mentors MUST be on the IPMC. Any prospective Mentors who are not yet on the
IPMC should ask to be added (by election). Email the application
This process may take a few days."

I'd like to put a finer point on this since any foundation member can simply ask to be added.
 VPs of PMCs are not automatically foundation members.  Though many VPs of PMCs also happen
to be foundation members, they were voted in by the foundation membership after a foundation
member nomination.
