In monitoring these discussions, it strikes me that some the differences may be
due to confusion as to exactly what the PMC is to to and/or be.

It seems the administration, legal review, etc. oriented tasks are best suited
to a smaller number like five.

It seems the goal setting, standards setting, cheerleading etc. are best suited
a representative from each project under the umbrella.

Maybe the goal should be a representive group that is a large as it needs to be
and an administrative group/committe that, ultimately, is responsible to
representative group.

If the PMC, as currently defined, is primarily the administrative group, then is
there some other organizational group and/or mechanism for handling
cross-project matters?
