You're right. I'm the only one who is checking in code to MINA now. But this
painful situation is going to change in the very near future. People started
to keep submitting patches and I've been really busy to apply the patches
and participating to the community discussion these days. So I believe we'll
get a few healthy committers soon and the community will grow up so fast.

I think this vote was a little bit earlier than I thought, so I expect many
'-1' casts. :)

Thanks Brett for your thoughtful advice.
