Don't get me wrong, I don't think we can't support John, its just that
since we don't seem too far from graduation and we are discussing pmc
roles in other threads, this seems to at least make a case for some
sort of bridge role between the community and wider ecosystem and that
just needs some thought and discussion. It can certainly start in the
ppmc but has implications for the make up of the pmc. Sort of thing
made for Louis I would have thought.
