I'd suggest that the reporter tool and Whimsy roster tool provide
pointers to each other, where the latter focuses on the differences.
I'm working slowly on making the roster tool read/write so that it can
be used instead of the Perl scripts and editing committee-info.txt
directly.  The idea is that adding an existing committer to the PMC
should be a matter of a few mouse clicks.
