There are good reasons for the guidelines.  One of the other Apache projects
recently had a situtation where someone proposed a new Committer in public,
there was a negative reaction from some people, and it created an
unfortunate situation in public.  There is no reason to either subject
anyone to that, or leave a public record of it.

Once the PMC situation is squared away by any of a few approaches, there
should be no reason to hold Committer or PMC Member votes in public.
