All of us need to help to define the details.
These formative stages of the PMC are vital.

Earlier in this thread i alerted the list to what i see
as a major flaw. I think that the answer is simple:
The initial PMC is formed from "all committers" - the
whole list at xml-cocoon2/who.xml no matter what their
status. They can take themselves off the PMC if they
wish. No distinction is the best way.
