I was going to say that!

In extreme cases the chair might have to make decisions on behalf of
the PMC but in 19 years at Apache I don't remember this happening.

The chair's role is really one of liaison with the Board, as Justin says.

That doesn't mean it's not a cool role, but we shouldn't put a heavier
burden on their shoulders than this!

I support Rodric's nomination, and if there's a need note that we can
also discuss and vote on this on the private list if preferred (as
it's about people), and even use for
anonymous voting if people think this is required. I don't, but wanted
to mention those options.

Also, I think it's good to rotate the chair's role regularly, so that
more people know how that works. So I'd suggest agreeing that this
nomination is for one year initially.
