According to the website moving to proper requires an "active group of 
committers" - I hardly qualifiy for that so I'm sort of stuck

Therefore I see two options

+) one existing committer teams up with me (preferred but rather 
unlikely looking at the recent activity)
+) I leave commons-exec at it is in the sandbox  and push out a SNAPSHOT
