That is simply not factual, and is a fabrication you are making, as well as
a very few others, and one that should be addressed.

There is absolutely NOTHING in the policy, which is entirely limited to
process, that describes the policy driving the process.  I agree with you,
as do most, that active committers in the external community should be made
committers as part of the first order of business for the PPMC.

And just whom do you think would make those decisions, and let them stand?
Remember: the ONLY BINDING VOTES BELONG TO THE INCUBATOR PMC.  The Mentors
are PMC members, and therefore their votes are binding.  Do you think so
little of the Mentors?  Or of the rest of the Incubator PMC, that we should
let such inappropriate behavior stand, even were a Mentor or two to act
inappropriately?
