There is an uncorrected defect in that process document. It says, in part,
that the sponsoring PMC must provide the Incubator PMC with:

  * a reference to the results of the vote (so as to provide an audit trail
for the records);
  * a reference to the Candidate's proposal;

AND ...

  * the Mentors, nominated by the Sponsor, who will guide the Candidate
through the Incubation Process.
    At least one nominated Mentor MUST be a member of the Apache Software
Foundation.

That third one, while partially correct, is in error.  Mentors are Incubator
PMC Members, and no one can impose Membership on the Incubator PMC.  If the
proposed Mentors are ASF Members, they can (and must -- we won't do it by
implication) request PMC Membership.  If the proposed Mentors are not ASF
Members, they must request a vote, which is may or may not be successful.
