As I mentioned earlier in this thread, I think this is a source of confusion.
The term "Champion" should always have the same requirements.

Before incubation: ipmc member or member
While incubation: ipmc member or member

But as I suggested in another thread I would like to prefer the
Champion be a pmc member of the sponsor.

Currently it reads:
"Where the Champion is not a Member of the Foundation (i.e. is an
Officer only), the Champion shall be a member of the PMC of the

Actually I think every Champion should be a member of the Sponsor. In
case of "Incubator"-Sponsor, did we ever had the situation that a
Member championed but was not on the IPMC? If this is not the case I
would prefer to rephrase this to:

"The Champion shall be a member of the PMC of the Sponsor."

As Members can become IPMC members on request, it does not make sense
to mention them explicitly.
