I am new to the IPMC, but there most be more the story....IPMC is created
to HELP projects not be a stone around the neck.

I can understand that an IPMC who dont really know the project, correctly
dont vote, but at least the mentors of the project should vote without the
need to be reminded.

Could it be that the base problem here, is not the vote, but the mentor
activity and that the project have not been good at doing marketing towards
the rest of IPMC ?

Being new, allows me to have a fresh view, so sorry if these matters have
already been analyzed.
