Subject Re: PPMC voting new committers
Date Sun, 05 Nov 2017 01:57:57 GMT
I'm of two minds on this: on one hand, in the beginning of the
incubation process something
like this certainly makes sense. Yet, towards the graduation we should
really encourage
the PPMC to behave more like a TLP PMC.  As such they should have an
option NOT to
follow these somewhat arbitrary rules but instead come up with the
rules of their own
(within the foundation policy and doctrine of course).

Not sure how to reconcile these two aspects.
