Continuously relitigating rules like this is tiresome.

In the longish thread from 2010, you made a specific proposal:

    http://markmail.org/message/eb4477634gkaomgk

Nobody objected at the time.  The language was perfectly clear, too.

Six months later, there was a "clarification" which actually changed the rule.

  http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/incubator/public/trunk/content/guides/ppmc.xml?r1=1036361&r2=1140654&diff_format=h

+1 to revert to the rule that you built consensus for.
