I agree, but we're also trying to have a relatively low barrier to help build community.

We have generally agreed that existing ASF Committers who want to participate should sign
up as the project is starting, and should be accepted.  But as a general rule, the PPMC should
be voting on committers.  Again with an eye for community building.  We can always drop people.
 And, as a reminder, Committers do not have binding votes.

The initial PPMC are the Mentors (actually the whole of the Incubator PMC).  I would suggest
that the PPMC immediately act to add Bill Flood and Ismael to the PPMC, at a minimum.  Then
the PPMC can address the Committer list collectively.
