This is where I think the Incubator has gone awry: the claim that you
are an IPMC member implies that you have merit on a project (in the
form of a binding vote) is false.

Merit should be earned and should be local - and, in that, I think
there are some re-adjustments in order as to how the Incubator

I'm mildly uncomfortable with mentors who aren't actually involved in
the project telling a community what to do - but I accept that as a
necessity of the Incubation process.  However, I'm much more
uncomfortable when folks who have *zero* affiliation (except for being
on some distant "PMC") telling a podling what to do because *they*
personally believe it is right even when others disagree.
