if l the "membership" what is the channel used and who is responsible for

I mean in individual projects, not in defining policy. Even in the poddling
that I've felt would benefit from this proposal the RM has learned by his
mistakes. Some of which were caught by IPMC review when an additional vote
was needed.

Who provides these cross-checks?

You asked if a project couldn't muster the binding votes on a release,
what's it doing on the incubator. This project couldn't, but it is still
graduating. Ironically when I suggested bringing the RM into the IPMC to
help other podlings trying to find votes Bill, who supports this proposal
said yes, but required that the RM must refrain from voting on his own
releases. That position seems to conflict with this proposal and I'm
unclear what the difference is.

Again, I agree the IPMC has not always worked, but it has not always failed
either.

Are legal@ going to do reviews when necessary? If not who is?
