-        The term "active" is not measured by "number of svn commits".
-        A committer can be active simply by participating occasionally
-        on the mailing lists.
-        Some people go away for various reasons.
-        They are welcome to return at any time.
+        Committers can be as active as they choose and there is no performance
+        pressure from the project. For those who are interested in the work
+        that each paticular committer has done, see the
+        <a href="guidelines.html#contributions">acknowledgements</a> section.
