Well-said, I completely agree.  This is the phrasing I was searching
for the whole day.

So we agree that we allow the current proposed committer list as-is,
but when we look at graduation from the incubator we examine test case
and documentation as well as the product source code itself, because
by bringing these people in as committers through the incubator, the
OpenJPA team commits to working on test cases and documentation as
much as product code?
