Folks,

Am trying to come up with bullet items (which can be expanded later) on what the board expects from a PMC and its members. Does anyone know if there is a document that already has this kind of list? Can folks please help refine/expand this list.

#1: Timely and accurate reports based on the rotation schedule in the foundation svn module #2: Create and maintain a charter that governs the PMC/project(s) #3: Take decisions affecting progress and health of the projects(s), ensure smooth fun
