A PMC might have multiple software products.  But a PMC is by definition
a "Project Management Committee", charged with managing the named
project that the board puts in the resolution.

Feel free to wordsmith, but the distinction between product and project
is an important one.  Or am I missing something?

PMCs only exist for TLPs (and for a few oddball other ones, like
ComDev).  There are no podling PMCs.  Discussing the Incubator PMC is
something best left to document on the Incubator website, if that's what
you're asking about (which I agree is a complex subject, not one I'm
ready to tackle yet).

My work here is merely to help make it easier for our volunteer PMCs
understand how things work, so everyone on this list is free to improve
the wordsmithing.
