Subject Re: recognizing valuable non-code contributions

Thanks, community thinkers!

The consensus is overwhelming for being generous with committer status.

(Additionally, just as a point of record, it seems that at least some projects are indeed
giving PMC membership without committer status, so that does seem to be reasonable Apache-fu,
when appropriate.)
