Yep this is what I pointed out.  I'm very interested to see some 
community building around MINA.  MINA has the potential for use across 
ASF projects and can stand on it's own if it has more committers.  This 
was a poll to see what people think about the potential for the 
project.  We can work on these statistics and have several users that 
will soon be getting involved with the project.  Keep in mind Trustin 
himself has been applying user patches for a year now: these statistics 
overlooks user contributions. 

IMHO *really* building the committer base will not be hard to do with so 
many userss out there needing changes. This is a matter of time.
