+Discussion of a potential new committer should take place on the project's PPMC list (normally,
it would take place on a project's TLP list).  After vetting the new candidate, the vote can
take place either on the PPMC list (with notice posted to the Incubator PMC list) or on the
developer list (with a notice posted to the Incubator's general list).  The latter practice
of a private discussion followed by a public, pro-forma, vote is re-emerging as a Best Practice
for ASF projects.
