So I stated my support earlier - this is likely a longer discussion on the how.

I think the 'how' is somewhat orthogonal to the 'IF'.

I think the guidelines themselves don't change, so it's very little
operational change. The difference is in authorization. We are moving
however, from a single person authorizing to more of a group thing. (I
am also against us having a SPOF, even if it's the project's SPOF). I
think we can adopt something along the lines of the 'old' New PMC
member notification that the board used to have. You request
permission - a single board member's ACK + 72 hours counted as
permission. Any NAK from a board member negated that. If we
s/Board/PMC/g that should give us a scalable but keep us from letting
problematic things escape oversight as well.
