Just put them all on the graduation proposal (the IPMC and board’s approval is equal to
NOTICE) and (unless Infra does it) add them to the PMC in Whimsy once you have graduated and
infrastructure has moved the project LDAP.

If a PPMC member has not participated in any governance activities during incubation, it's
unclear that they belong on the PMC.
