I do object to conflating LDAP committee and PMC membership.
The two are completely distinct (although related).

This is why I changed the text to show LDAP committee rather than PMC
a while back.
At the time, the tool did not analyse the actual PMC membership, only LDAP.

However it does now, so the output shows them as distinct items.

The LDAP committee information is not really relevant to the board, so
could now be dropped from the report skeleton.

But I think it is completely wrong to imply that changes to the LDAP
committee group have any bearing on PMC membership.
