As you know, we are discussing some options related to this topic.  One
would be that for a given subproject, we would have
$subproject-pmc@incubator.apache.org, where the members of that list consist
of the Incubator PMC, the subproject's committers, and (if there is one) the
PMC for the destination TLP.  So in the case of Lenya, that would mean the
Incubator PMC, the Cocoon PMC and the lenya committers.

That doesn't require all Lenya committers to be on the Incubator PMC, keeps
the Cocoon PMC involved, and provides direct oversight from the Incubator
PMC.  The decisions are made in one place at one time, rather than spread
out over time and project and people.

Thoughts?
