a+b.  =)

How about following the board's system for acknowledging new PMC members:
1. PMC *chair* of Sponsor sends in notification to general@incubator.
1. Any Incubator PMC member can then send an ACK and start a 72hr clock.
2. If any PMC member says "hold" before 72hrs are up, a formal
discussion/vote is then conducted.
3. If no PMC member has any negative comment at the end of 72hr clock,
then the PMC chair can commit the status file and 'start' the podling.

How does that sound?  -- justin
