[tools-pmc] Re: [photran-dev] Moving Photran from Technology to be a component of PTP

At least from my perspective:

1) Yes, I'm prepared to include Photran in the PTP management, planning, and release process.

2) Control and technical direction of a project is determined by the committers. I don't see this changing for Photran.
