I would see this as a nomination from the existing moderators, perhaps with the consensus
of the Volunteers to the PPMC to grant Moderator status to the nominee.  I'd have no problem
with that.  I accept that the Moderators, as the effective day-to-day managers of the Forum,
represent the Apache ethos and their nomination should certainly be ratified by the PPMC.
