member involvement as opposed to merely questioning and having appropriate
transparency into all parts to provide oversight. Do we need a PPMC member
directly administrating forums and wikis? Do we need the PPMC to provide a
generally "Lazy Consensus" approval of committers and other contributors
filling roles within the Forum or Wiki administration? Should the PPMC
require certain parts of the community to report status periodically?

>From a purely ASF point of view there are very few things that require PMC
oversight. the following are the only ones that jump to mind:

- release votes (which equates to IP  due diligence)
- new committers/PMC members

The project may define a few other areas, but that's up to the project.
