Not sure if they are looking for minimal # of committers added, I have
not seen that documented yet.  As for community size, the link I
posted earlier covers that.  It mentions the project must have at
least 3 independent committers.

I have seen other small and/or lightly active projects graduate with
no issue.  It seems the criteria are :

 * getting legal stuff inorder
 * showing the community can function in the apache way
 * releasing

I think we have met these criteria and I am not sure what else we need
to do.  I think the only way we can find out what else we may need to
do it to try to graduate.  If we try and fail, then we can take action
to address the failure.
