Perhaps one comment about the requirement for the maintainer to submit a 
detailed bi-weekly report on a public list. That sounds a bit annoying 
for the individual having to disclose his time usage in public without 
any real benefit for the list members. Would it not be enough to have 
the maintainer report directly to the supervisor? I think the sponsors 
and the PSC members are the only people who need to see that report and 
they could request a copy from the supervisor if/when they need one (or 
they could be automatically CC'd). The rest of the people on the list 
don't need to see that information.

Other than that the RFC looks great to me.
