Sounds good to me.

I'm flattered, thank you, but I have to decline. It's not about the time
or additional work - I'm definitely willing to help out in organizational
things like graduation or reporting duties, no matter who becomes PMC
chair. However, I think there's a candidate who's much better suited.

I'm not sure how the nomination/election process works here, or if there
is one, but I'd like to nominate you, Josh. Crunch is your baby, you have
spent more time on it than anybody else - not just coding, but even more
imporantly in building a community. You are always willing to discuss
things, you stay polite even when you disagree and you make compromises 
when the majority of the team wants to take a different road. That's
worth a lot, so I think you would be the perfect candidate.

What do you think guys?
