There was conversation on members@ in the last couple of days (which I'm unable to view) that
came to the opposite conclusion, so there's some confusion/differing opinion on the matter.

Context is that I was under the assumption that consensus was required to vote a committer
in, other PMC members thought otherwise or were unsure. On looking into it, I found it does
vary from project to project and that it didn't seem to be defined clearly anywhere if your
project doesn't have bylaws/guidelines.
