As I tried to infer in my message, I would like to see this Chair thing 
to be eradicated of any "star stage" aspect, and as such I'm willing to 
lead the way with a first, boring term of 6 months to set the style: 
only legal aspects, perhaps the creation of specific bylaws the PMC sees 
fit, report to the board upon board meeting times, and then happily 
resign after the first term. Hopefully I will be able during this time 
to come up with some SOP for the Cocoon PMC Chair, to help the others 
who will follow me.

Needless to say, for the outside world, my only visible affiliation with 
this project is my email address & commit rights. I see the role of a 
PMC Chair as strictly internal to the ASF.

Of course, I'm perfectly willing to step aside if the situation requires 

Pardon me to CC this to cocoon-dev, but I felt this reply should be 
heard over there, too.
