If you're interested in another approach...in the XMLBeans vote on
the proposed resolution and PMC chair, I included an option for the
committer to choose to become part of the PMC.  This meant that people
who didn't vote at all weren't part of the PMC, and that people who 
didn't want to be part of the PMC could passively decline.  I felt it 
was important for a clearly intentional choice to take on the 
responsibility of being on the PMC.  This method can also serve to
naturally filter out committers who have not been very active 
(unless they make a conscious act to renew their activity).  Of course,
anyone missed could always be voted into the PMC at a later time, 
depending on the established charter.

Anyway, just thought I'd throw that out there in case you find any
merit in that approach.

Cliff
