Interesting... Yes I've noticed some people seem to have a lot
of pride in listing themselves as PMC members, but then from the
looks of things, I can't help but wonder what they're doing.
Perhaps there's something going on behind the scenes, though to
be honest it isn't clear what. Perhaps some visibility would be
good, or is the lack of it intentional? Either that or I'm just
missing what's going on, and there's a blog, wiki, or web page
out there describing the activities in detail. I think the
Lucene projects are great, and if it aint broke don't fix it.

hasn't rotated but that's probably b/c the Lucene PMC is pretty low-key and low-maintanence
