-      <title>Voting in a new committer</title>
-      <p>If a person has made significant contributions of
-      high-quality, is interested in continuing to
-      contribute, and works well with
-      others under the Apache guidelines, the project might want to
-      grant that person <a
+      <title>Adding new committers</title>
+
+      <p>Adding new committers is one of the most important functions
+      of any PMC, and Incubator podlings are no different.</p>
+
+      <p>There are no ASF wide rules on how to decide when to make someone 
+      a committer, podlings need to agree an approach that works for them. 
+      Some ASF projects have a high bar requiring significant contributions before
+      someone is considered, other projects grant it more freely to anyone
+      who shows interest in contributing. Some projects use formal [DISCUSS] and
+      [VOTE] threads on the private mailing list, others use a more lazy consensus
+      approach. For more information see,<a
       href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/glossary.html#CommitAccess">
-      commit access</a>. See the ASF <em>How it Works</em> document,
+      commit access</a> and the ASF <em>How it Works</em> document,

-      <p>Voting a new committer is one of the most important functions 
-      of any PMC, and the Incubator is no different.</p>
-
-      <p>Any member of the PPMC can propose a new committer. The
-      proposal should be discussed in private on the PPMC private alias,
-      with a subject line of [DISCUSS] Joe Bob as committer. If there
-      is consensus that the proposed member is suitable, then there should
-      be a formal vote in the PPMC private alias, with the subject line of
-      [VOTE] Joe Bob as committer. The [VOTE] message should be forwarded
-      to the IPMC (<a href="mailto:private@incubator.apache.org">
-      private@incubator.apache.org</a>) to notify them that the
-      vote is underway. Do not BCC or CC the IPMC on the VOTE thread.
-      Instead, forward the initial VOTE email.</p>
 
-      <p>To be successful the vote requires <strong>at least three +1 votes
-      from PPMC members, including at least one +1
-      from a podling mentor</strong>, or, if no mentors are available, from
-      an Incubator PMC member.</p>
-
-      <p>If the vote is successful, the proposer should send
-      a message to the PPMC private alias, and forward it to the IPMC,
-      with the subject line of [VOTE][RESULT] Joe Bob as committer.
-      The message should include the usual vote tally, indicating which
-      mentor or IPMC member votes cause it to be valid. Do not
-      BCC or CC the IPMC on the results email.  Instead, forward it.
-      </p> 
+      <p>The podling Incubator reports should document any new committers 
+      added since the last report.</p>
 
-      <p>
-      If the vote is successful, the proposer offers committership 
+      <p>Once the decision has been made the proposer offers committership 
       to the nominee. If the nominee accepts the responsibility of being 
       a committer for the project, the nominee formally becomes an 
       Apache committer.</p>
