Hello Patrick, and also Reynold and Jaques as they have made similar
requests on other threads...

It's great to have you and we all look forward to your participating
in incubation projects in a new capacity!

It's the standard procedure for adding a PMC member from here on out:
the Incubator's PMC Chair sends a NOTICE to the Board, we wait for 72
hours to ensure that no Board member objects to the addition, then the
Chair finishes the clerical work. From the standpoint of the
corporation, you officially become PMC members (with valid voting
privileges, etc.) when committee-info.txt is updated.

The only difference in the process for the Incubator is that while
non-ASF-Member candidates for the IPMC must be voted on as with all
other PMCs, ASF Members may sidestep the vote. Member requests usually
go to the private list because that's where personnel changes are
traditionally discussed at Apache and there is a (very) remote
possibility that the Board might reject a candidate. But of course
it's fine to receive your requests on general@incubator.

Finally, lest this explanation sow confusion with regards to adding
new *PPMC* members, the process is slightly different -- the IPMC gets
notified instead of the Board.

Good luck and let us know if you have questions!

Marvin Humphrey
