I think that Rob is being serious here, he's mentioned this twice. There are rules, but there
are ways to deal with those rules.

I fail to see any sarcasm in this honest offer and I second the offer including PPMC membership.
If a known OOo security expert wishes to join our podling we should make all necessary efforts
to include them.

The PPMC would have to discuss and vote about any individual nominated on ooo-private and
that might take a week, but that's an administrative matter. Why a week? There is a 72 hour
or so discussion period followed by a 72 hour or so voting period.
