There has been sufficient precedence for 'contrib committers' in  
Hadoop (e.g. Chukwa vis-a-vis the former 'Hadoop Core' sub-project)  
and is normal within the Apache world for committers with specific  
'roles' e.g specific Contrib modules, QA, Release/Build etc. (http://hadoop.apache.org/common/credits.html

  - in fact, Giridharan Kesavan is an unlisted 'release' committer for  
Apache Hadoop)

I believe it's a desired, nay stated,  goal for Zebra to graduate as a  
Hadoop sub-project eventually, based on which it was voted-in as a  
contrib module by the Apache Pig.

Given these, I don't see  any cause for concern here.
