The Incubator PMC is the second largest in the ASF, and likely to become the
largest in short order.  As long as we have sufficient oversight, I agree
with you.

That may be true, but as ASF Members (which most are), I would expect (and
have observed) that they have an overall concern regarding events that
effect the ASF.

Personally, my view has been consistent.  Most votes regarding a podling can
and should be on their own lists.  The PMC should be notified of all such
votes in a timely manner in case other PMC members want to involve
themselves.  [And this is why I keep raising the issue of every podling
having at least 3 mentors, so that they have sufficient binding votes.]

Votes to graduate a project should be, IMO, held on
