Please do not twist my words Ivelin. I did not say that
Stefano should not be elected.

I pointed out that the sudden (without any discussion) concept,
that PMC members be active committers, is flawed and needs
careful consideration.

What i was pointing out, is that Stefano (and others) will need
to be removed from the "active committers" list in who.xml
and then that breaks the notion that "PMC membership" equates
to being an active committer.

We cannot have one rule for some people and a different rule
for others.

That is not yet decided. I, for one, am not yet happy with
what constitutes Cocoon PMC membership.

I disagree. The PMC will need to be tweaking certain
documentation in CVS. It does not take much to remain
an active committer ... one change every three months.

I agree, the job of chair has many aspects. However, to put
flaws in the rules will lead to trouble later on. When we
need to introduce new people to PMC membership and retire
old ones, we need a consistent definition of "PMC membership".
