That's because disbanding the IPMC isn't in response to /that/ problem,
so little wonder you are confused.

Disbanding the IPMC, and making PPMC contributors part of their own
committees, gives them voices in a process that they are locked out of.

One recent response was to hand pick a select few of the PPMC contributors
who went above and beyond, and give these exalted few individual membership
in the IPMC, so their votes would be binding.

But Roy has always been fond of saying that if you are creating the code
you should be the one with voting privileges.  All of 'you'.

Making each 'podling' an actual committee, with additional restrictions
due to their 'freshness' and new exposure to ASF culture, gives the core
of each new podling the voice and authority to act on their own code.

And /that/ is the problem that we are trying to solve ;)
