This gives me pause. It sounds like as a mentor, you taking this hands-off
approach saying: this is a poddling as any podling. PPMC will determine
what's right.

I guess I will have to disagree. For a project like NetBeans you will have
a LOT of people who have stake in the code base and who are NOT on
the initial list of committers. I think as a mentor you should be prepared
to actively manage that and help PPMC form an opinion of what is
the right thing to do given the Apache Way.
