i'm not sure about this. roy seems very convinced that PPMCs are
official committees. IMO this policy seems reasonable but it's not
publically written down anywhere and a little more ceremony and
documentation would be required before i find this convincing in
practice. may be necessary to go through the records...

IMHO in theory, this is a matter for the board which they delegate to
the incubator PMC. in practice i think that the PPMC will become the
PMC.

what would be very useful are some guides about what a PMC is and what
it isn't. something along the lines that the pmc should only act in an
official capacity when that's absolutely required which is mostly
process stuff. didn't come up with a form of wording that i found
satisfactory. be very happy if docathoners came up with suitable
content :-)
