That is simply not necessarily true Sebb.  There are two LDAP groups per
TLP/PMC.  ou=groups,cn=httpd   and  ou=pmc,ou=groups,cn=httpd - there
are even groups that do no represent a TLP/PMC in the same OU.  

PMC chairs are told to add new PMC members to the PMC group, while new
committers (where a TLP does not operate that a committer is not also a
PMC member (ala Subversion)) are only added to the 'Unix' group.

This is in fairness a carry over from the old minotaur days.  The former
was known as the PMC unix group, and the latter was a group created to
define the PMC membership.  

You should never a group either defines, or does not define access
