I am so tempted to -1 just because I'm in a chaotic mood today. But I'll settle for the knowledge
that the mere mention of a -1 will have caused a few groans 😉

Seriously, I'm a strong +1 and hope to help with such a refocus. With that in mind I would
note that the original PMC charter was intentionally limited in scope to bringing people into
ASF projects. This was to avoid conflict with the Incubator which focused on code. I propose
going a step further than simply adopting a new mission statement. We should change the charter
 to reflect this proposed mission. It currently says:

RESOLVED, that the Apache Community Development Project
be and hereby is responsible for helping people become
involved with Apache projects; and be it further

I believe it's the best way, but, ok.
