Subject [jira] Created: (INCUBATOR-33) Clarify Role of Champion And Consolidate Policy

Clarify Role of Champion And Consolidate Policy

                 Key: INCUBATOR-33
             Project: Incubator
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: policy
            Reporter: Robert Burrell Donkin
         Assigned To: Robert Burrell Donkin

The currently document is contradictory.
includes a little discussion of the role and implies that only champions can be members.
uses declarative language and allows members and champions. This isn't good and needs resolving
one way or another.

Elections championed by Officers have succeeded in the past and I see no reason why Champions
should not be officers though this may - or may not - prevent then acting as mentors. So,
this patch consolidates the documentation in that direction. I'm willing to create a similar
patch if the converse opinion is in the majority.
