Sorry to see you interpret things this way. I'll do my best to help out. 
I have spent enough of my life on Batik that I would not just dump it 
:-), but there are only so many hours in a day. I hope someone else can 
step up and represent Batik on the XML Graphics PMC.

Yes, I agree we need someone who is more dedicated to Batik.

Do people on the PMC need to be commiters? If so, then the options for 
Batik are going to be pretty limited.

What do you think needs to happen for the formation of the new PMC 
(apart from finding volunteers)? What will people need to do: set up a 
new project repositiory? set-up/moderate mailing lists? And what do you 
expect the changes to be for FOP and Batik, for commiters, developers 
and users? For example, will there be web site changes, release changes
