Looking at the three proposals, can we take pieces from all?

* Auto PMC membership for committers who have been active for
   at least six months.

* Charter and Bylaw voting time period is a week

* A motion passes with 2/3 majority vote of quorum

* In the event that quorum cannot be met, voting remains open
   until quorum is met.

* Size of quorum shall be [insert your percentage here], with
   a floor of 3 people (i.e. if percentage of PMC is less than
   three, then Quorum is still 3)

BTW, what percentage of PMC membership would you like to see
for quorum?  50% or 33%?  I am flexible on this point.
