I think the breakdown is: current active committers are from IBM, RougeWave
and two independents.

I'm not sure exactly who does how many hours for a day job but i _think_ at
least 3 of those IBM committers don't participate at all for their day
jobs.

Tuscany has 11 inactive committers (not contributed for months), from BEA,
IBM, IONA and Redhat and two independents, I don't know if any of those will
contribute again, last time i spoke to one of them they said they would but
they were busy on other things just now.

There's two more new people being voted on presently, and the STATUS file
[1] shows new committers have been getting added every month or two over
most of the incubation.

So from that Tuscany does "more than meet" the minimum requirement of "at
least 3 legally independent committers". I've not seen this detail on
diversity and active versus inactive committers in other graduations - how
does Tuscany compare with other previously graduating poddlings?
