Ahem.  Some of us have more visibility than others, perhaps.  :-P

Personally, I'd amend that (given my visibility into Ant community and 
all that) to be both long time *AND* currently active.  Few have been 
committers to Ant longer than I have, but this year I have done a few 
commits at most.  While I believe that I still have earned enough trust 
and respect to commit my own patches and vote on topics that I plan to 
actively participate in solving, I would not feel the slightest bit 
slighted if I were not included in the proposed PMC list.  (Rest assured 
that I will poke my head in from time to time anyway).

- Sam Ruby, Ant Committer, Board member, in that order.
