The problem is that people must be members of the Incubator PMC to
vote on releases.

I don't have a problem with having 172 members on this PMC, it is
clear that many of them are not currently active and that's fine.

What does that mean exactly?
That we consider -1s in votes on IPMC membership to be just a -1 on a
majority vote, as opposed to a veto?
I'm in favor of that, and I don't think we need more rules.
