Initially _I_ have two blocks of questions;

1. As I have not seen this being formulated in an official policy, nor 
expressed as a public Board sentiment, nor have I seen any resolution that 
this is the case, nor have I seen a list of actions/activity that would bring 
disqualification of an individual on a PMC, I therefor ask the Board to 
present why this is the case with Stephen McConnell, a top contributor and 
remarkable technical talent? Also, who else within the ASF are in this group 
or may be on the verge of such disqualification? Am I?

2. Stephen is currently on the PPMC of the Directory project. Does the above 
statement precondition a graduation of Directory out of the Incubator, that 
Stephen is not part of the future Directory PMC? And how is this going to be 
enforced on to the Directory project?

Please correct me if I am wrong, but currently the ASF doesn't have any 
policies, procedures and by-laws regarding the 'demotion' of individuals, and 
in effect anyone could potentially be at the whim of high ranking officers 
(Board) and to a lesser degree PMCs(?), which currently may seem 
satisfactorily, but that doesn't mean it always will be.
