Some time ago we used to have a committers list at cocoon/who.html
which was just one long list of all committers. Then cocoon-dev
decided to categorise that into three types of committer "active",
"in-active" and "emeritus".

Actually, i do not want to define "committer categories" when we
are talking about PMC membership. I want all committers to be
invited. This is the resolution that we have arrived at elsewhere
in this thread.

You did mis-understand my concerns. Actually, i do want to ensure
that no-one is ever excluded, either now or in the future. The
previous proposal to only have "active committers" on the PMC,
was what i was disputing.

If we do not clearly define what constitutes PMC membership, then
we risk confusion later.
