Right. At the same time if the hypothetical PMC repeatedly fails at fostering
the community by recognizing certain types of merit I will expect the board to
get involved at some point. But! It will expect it to get involved b/c
of the community
shepherding issue, not so much because a procedural guideline has
been violated.

I know this may be irritatingly nebulous (especially to folks who haven't been
around long enough to benefit from the ASF osmosis) but I feel this is
one the key things I *really* like about how ASF is governed.
