AFAIR, that was never *my* understanding.  AFAIK, that has
*never* been the way the incubator has worked.  Every podling
has supposed to have had a PPMC.  If I'm wrong, please correct
me; where did you (and evidently others) read whatever it
was that said a TLP PMC could serve for a podling?

I believe there are two options:

1. Submit the code through the IP-vetting process.  The people
   join the TLP dev mailing list and earn merit for commit over
   time like anyone else.
2. Submit the code+people for processing through the incubator
   as a podling.  The committers get commit access right away,
   but now it's both the code and the community that's being
   vetted.  And the eventual disposition of the podling is not
   a foregone conclusion.

There is no fast-track to commit access.

See above.  Code can come in quickly; people cannot.
