As might be becoming clear now, Geir has handed the position of PMC chair over to Henri Yandell (writing this). The following is a (somewhat bare) report on the month of June to the Jakarta community. One of the chair's roles is to provide a report to the ASF board on the current state of things. These monthly reports will help form that report.
Prior to his departure, Geir started some discussion (PMC list) concerning Jakarta charter revisions and the various documents describing the governance of Jakarta. The current documents are quite out of date in places - "The number of PMC seats is set at seven". Expect more on this.
The PMC resolved a lack of oversight issue concerning the tomcat-security list, and two committers have stepped up to moderate it. Equally, the General list turned out to be lacking many moderators, so one of the themes for the next month may be to double-check our moderation coverage.
Dion Gillard has volunteered to be a Junior Apmail Apprentice (I presume this makes him our target for mail-list problems) to try and take some of common workload off of infrastructure.

(All information in this report is to the best of my (Hen's) knowledge, but I'm entirely fallable so corrections are welcomed. )
