It is unfortunate that you think this way. Bruce and Aaron have played a
foundational role in Flume and they deserve to be seated on the PPMC unless
they explicitly request to be removed. I welcome their contribution anytime
and hope that they chose to remain on the project.

Because I counted them as mentors and not PPMC. I am happy to include them
if they want to be counted as PPMC. Pardon me if I should not have made
this distinction. The one person who was left out inadvertently was Prasad
who recently got elected to PPMC.

You were counted because three months ago you announced that you would like
to stay with the project post graduation. I don't remember seeing any
communication from you stating your change of mind. That said, I respect
your choice either way.
