Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] Clarify the role of the Champion as an "incubation coordinator" (was: should podlings have informal chairs?)
Date Thu, 24 Nov 2011 17:17:14 GMT
My apologies for the diversion.  I should not have said anything about my direct knowledge
of a champion being an IPMC member or not.  Whether I knew that or not was irrelevant to the
point I wanted to make, which is now evidently lost.

1. I find value in the idea of the original champion continuing as a champion over the life
of the PPMC (unless replaced) and serving as a mentor of the mentors.

2. I do not find value in that role being taken over by a non-mentor PPMC member because of
the hazards already mentioned and because a champion has karma that PPMC members do not. 
Losing such a resource (and a go-to person when mentor-support is MIA, and vice versa) strikes
me as too costly/risky.  Also, it strikes me as important that a graduatable PPMC not have
any indispensable members.  One way to ensure that is to keep the responsibilities diffuse
and also accounted for.

 - Dennis
