Thanks.  This looks like a good fit.

One question on interpreting this alternative process.  It says, "For
all releases after the first, votes cast by members of the PPMC are
binding if a Mentor approves the Release Manifest."

Do we mean all releases after the first using the alternative process
specifically?  Or after the first release, even if that release was
using the mainline podling release procedure?

(We've already had two podling releases via the normal procedure.)

We (the PPMC) have already discussed proposing me as an additional
Mentor for the Podling, now that I'm on IPMC.  That could help enable
us using the "Alternative Release Voting Process".
