A 'community' includes those on the dev list, not just committers/pmc.

There are 67 subscribed to heraldry-dev, another 20 to commits@ and 
19 to the user@, this IMO is a community.

However, you need a working community to get back up and running.
I have offered several times to help where I can, but not with the
code base at the moment , I don't know enough, but I can help with
the website and putting up of docs etc, this is usually regarded
as a need in  most projects eyes.

I have an ICLA already in as I am PMC member for Apache Forrest.
However I am not asking for commit status at this stage, if you
want my help then I'll submit doc and site patches via Jira and
someone else can then take the extra step of applying the
patches, it would make more sense that I do it directly but I
agree I have not earned any Karma on the project so far.

The few people you have so far I would have thought would be better
concentrating on getting some more code in that site/docs.

Anyway, I'll keep a look out and jump in where I can.
