Membership is a half-way point?  What's the full distance?  ;-)

But I agree with you: "It is absolute nonsense to have someone guiding
newbies through the ASF process when they haven't even made it to the
halfway point themselves."  And so we should not elect them to the Incubator
PMC.

We just voted to elect a non-Member ASF Officer to the Incubator PMC in
order for him to act as Mentor for the projects sponsored by the PMC of
which he is the PMC Chair.  Do we wish to declare that election and process
null and void?  Or do you concur that the Incubator PMC has the right to
elect whom it feels appropriate to execute the role, based upon its
collective human judgement?

Is the Board wrong to permit Officers who are not Members?  Just how far do
you want to take this?  Are you really going to hold the Incubator PMC's
(and the Board's) decisions hostage to the voting schedule of the
Foundation?
