I'm no Apache guru, if committers == PMC I don't see why there are  
two roles at all. By looking at http://apache.org/foundation/how-it- 
works.html#roles it seems to me that it's very well possible that the  
PMC is a subset of the "developers and committers". Looking at a  
couple of other projects (I could find lists for Cayenne and  
Geronimo, but did not look at all of them) they both have a  
difference between committers and PMC members.

In short, as long as there are two roles I don't think we should  
invite all committers to become PMC members by default.

Greetings, Marcel
