I had a look. I agree with your assessment.

I feel a bit uncomfortable at the idea of a PMC  with 3 people + 1
mentor on it, though I do not quite have a solid reason for it. Maybe
because making binding decisions in that case effectively requires
full consensus?

But I guess it does meet the minimum size. If 3 is not enough, what
number is? If it does become a problem, there's an attic process.

What would be really bad for Etch is if the incubator recommends it
graduates into a TLP and then the board doesn't want to pass the
resolution because it's a very small PMC. I would almost be inclined
to prod board@ to see what they have to say on the matter?


cheers,


Leo
