Hi Jukka-

I appreciate you getting involved and helping out. Thanks.

I'm unclear on your last statement.  Doesn't the PPMC make the final
decision on things such as accepting code contributions?  Don't we,
therefore, need the PPMC setup to accomplishment accepting
the code?

We've been living under the assumption that the initial committers
and PPMC need to be setup as Step #1 so we could proceed then
proceed with accepting the code (and then, obviously, working on
the code).

All of the initial committers from the Proposal have submitted ICLAs...
so can't we just get them administratively setup as committers and
on the PPMC and really be ready to move forward?
