+        We conduct the vote on the private PMC mailing list to enable a frank
+        discussion.
+        In most cases we will be inviting people to go straight from developer
+        to PMC member, i.e. they simultaneously become committer and PMC
+        member. However, there may be extraordinary cases where we want
+        limited work-related commit access (not also a PMC member).
+        This will be resolved during the discussion and vote.
+        Notes about this process are in the "committers" svn in the
+        pmc/forrest/ directory.
