Technically, the PMC Chair is not a leader and his vote counts exactly 
as the one of any other PMC member. He merely has the burden to take 
care of a number of post-graduation steps, which I completed during the 
weekend (except those now being handled by Infra)
and to act as a liaison officer between PMC and Apache Board.

Yes, but there are events that we as a project cannot (or at least 
shouldn't) miss. I tend to agree with Peter's interpretation of this: 
allow local (for a certain definition of "local": same country, 
continent...) volunteers to occasionally participate in events or talks 
to promote Apache OpenOffice there.
