>From this discussion, other then the mentor vote, there is still a
need to notify the IPMC and if we give the 72 hrs the IPMC members can
still provide oversight/investigation if they think there is an issue
with the proposed committer. Having said that, we had this process in
the past, and some podlings are already experimenting this process and
it does not seem to have caused any issues. Anyway, just my 0.02c.
