+1 from me for Stefano to be chair, because he is deserving
and it is appropriate.

The last time i heard, the intention was to start the
Cocoon PMC with *all* Cocoon committers. Why the sudden
change to "active committers" only?

If we follow that route, then Stefano, you would not be on the
PMC, because by the definition of CVS xml-cocoon/xdocs/who.xml
and the history at
you actually belong in the "Inactive Committers" section
and are close to being "Emeritus". You are not the only
one in that situation.

So, we need to define very carefully what constitutes a PMC
member and how/when PMC members are considered to be retired.
We must get this whole PMC setup correct from the beginning.

Just get started and we will all help to develop the vision.
We should start with building a simple list of dot-points.
Shall we do it on the Cocoon Wiki or on cocoon-dev ?
