The Project proposal must contain the name of the project, the

I'd suggest including an initial list of members in that list as well.
An Interest Group is more informal than a Project; it will not be
mailing list unless a need for one is demonstrated. Additionally, Interest
Groups related to a package or set of packages will not have an official
branch of packages.git created. It is expected that Interest Groups will
work with any relevant Project(s) to accomplish their packaging tasks.
So what _do_ they get? Just web space?
Nomination of a new member of the Platform Group may be made by any
Committer. The new member must be an existing Committer with no disciplinary
action taken against them in the past six months. The existing Platform
Group will then hold a vote on the candidate; a simple majority will allow
the addition of the Committer to the Platform Group.
The process for
"disciplinary action" should probably be explained somewhere.
Also, are there term limits (or is the Platform Group the set of BDFLs)? And
what's the process for stepping down voluntarily?
Everything in the document so far looks good, but I think it could use some
elaboration on the points above.
