Hi Roman...

I was hoping that some of the other more seasoned IPMC members would step up
to comment on this, since you and I have a lot going on at the moment and
you're a Mentor for Celix.  Ah well...

Scope statement looks good to me.

Four is a very small number for a PMC.  I've commonly heard people argue that
five should be the cutoff.  If just two people move on, the project won't be
able to make releases.

My personal feeling is that small PMCs are OK when at least one member has
been added during incubation (demonstrating openness) and when the project has
been around for years with stable core personnel who are unlikely to
disappear.  But four is still really low, and it wouldn't surprise me if
the Board objected.
