Yes, that's what I figured, and why I am volunteering myself. .

I will do my best to consider all forms of contribution through
official community channels. However, I am not infallible. My initial
list will be an opportunity to explore and validate my process. It
will not be the final list, that will be drawn up after the PPMC have
an opportunity to feed back.

Note, it is *not* my intention to make any kind of quality assessment
of peoples contributions. I'm only interested in whether people are
sufficiently *active* to warrant full privileges in the PMC. Exactly
what "sufficiently active" means at this point is unclear. Each
project has a different bar for PMC membership and we'll find that bar
through evaluation of my initial list and process. I imagine the whole
process will take a number of weeks.
