I agree opening it up to all PMC and PPMC members would create too much risk. >> I get that this is increasing risk.

Quite frequently this is the case but there are also a fair number of instances where this is not the case for some projects. I certainly have had to fill in for a PMC chair a few times using my infra karma. Rather than relying on another PMC chair or officer happening to be around, or on a mentor also being a PMC chair or officer, I'd like to see this opened up a little. We trust ASF members. They have access to security@ and a bunch of other sensitive lists and they should be familiar enough with the foundation standards and procedures - or at least self-aware enough to know when they don't know. Opening this up to include ASF members addresses all of the instances I can think of: - it would include all podling mentors since they must be ASF members - it would include the IPMC for the same reason, allowing them to back-stop the mentors if required - it would enable ASF members on PMCs to provide cover if the PMC chair was unavailable.
