Its still good to have some minimal diversity of the active committers
and right now it looks like Pivot only has two people actively
committing code and they're both from the same employer. Wouldn't it
be possible to encourage some of the other community members to help
more on the code if they're already active in other areas? That would
make it easier for me to vote for graduation.
