Hi Jacques,
I tried to pull in as much information as I could about LDAP changes, 
but sadly, we have not kept track of new committers being added to a 
project in the same way we keep track of PMC additions, hence this 
behavior on the site. There's no fix for this currently, BUT it will 
correct itself when you add a new committer as it is now checking LDAP 
records daily for changes. You can just ignore that bit for now (till 
you get a new committer again), and edit that out in your report, should 
you choose to use the template provided.

With regards,
