+1

Podlings should be able to choose their own PMC and do not need an ASF
member on that PMC.  However, it's useful to have at least one member,
such as a former mentor, around on the private@ list to answer
questions.  New TLPs have a VP who can go directly to the board, so it's
not like they're completely on their own, but at least having someone
subscribed to the private@ list can help.
