I personally like the board's method of approving new PMC members - at
least one director ACKs and given silence you get approved, and I
think that works well here. Any PMC member can raise a flag if
concerned, but doesn't require a vote or any real process to speak of,
aside from time.

I don't understand the benefit of this. Who would it benefit? This
list isn't a high volume one to begin with, so not like we need to
create tons of rules for filtering email.
