Here is the comment I made in response to your question.  Several
other board members noted their assent with this statement and none
dissented.

               My understanding is that when a podling wishes to merge
               into an existing PMC, the decision is up to the
               recieving PMC, much like any other large contribution.
               The board provides oversight for this, as with all
               activity at the ASF.  That said, the IPMC provides
               valuable, relevant and desired input to the board's
               oversight.  Like a podling graduation, the IPMC can
               recommend action or caution to the board.

To my thinking, whether the IPMC wishes to get involved in projects
that might join existing PMCs is largely up to the IPMC, not the
board.  That said, it's sometimes hard to know at the outset whether
something will develop into a sufficiently large, independent
community or whether its developers might instead end up join an
existing, closely related community.  I don't see why the IPMC would
would want to forbid prospective podlings from mentioning this
possibility.
