It's not uncommon, and totally fine, for people to participate
occasionally in Apache projects, and "disappear" for some time in
between contributions.

For a podling it's a bit different, as people can join just by signing
up on the initial list of committers.

I don't see a need to remove anyone from the list of committers now,
but what some podlings do is review the list of committers before
graduation, and ask inactive people if they want to stay or not.

IIRC, some of the people who were on the list of initial committers
haven't even requested their @apache.org accounts. We won't go after
them anymore ;-)
