Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] Clarify the role of the Champion as an "incubation coordinator" (was: should podlings have informal chairs?)

Ross,

I don't see the champion (who is at least a mentor) and an informal PPMC chair somehow selected
among the PPMC members as interchangeable or equivalent.  My concern was, to the extent that
view exists (and I may simply be confused), I don't get it.

I'd be happy to learn that I have misunderstood some of the positions expressed.

 - Dennis

The official role of PMC  chair is created upon graduation, yes. But the
responsibilities the role carries start once incubation starts. At present
nobody l owns those responsibilities during graduation.

I'm confused, and therefore request more info about your concern. The two
roles, as I understand them are essentially the same (once incubation
starts).  I don't see any significant differences and thus don't see any
"collapse" of two roles into one. Can you point to the differences you
perceive?
