Subject Re: [graduation] Our next step

We've received what seems to be all the nominations we're going to get 
from the community at large.  Let's just tally up the nominations and 
leave the final decision making up to the Directory PPMC.   The final 
call is up to the PPMC which must determine how to interpret these 
nominations.  Once the PPMC decides on the constituency of the future 
PMC they will formally request its creation from the ASF board.
