Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Flex for Apache Incubator

I don't read it that way.  Yes, ASF projects only contain individuals, but
most of those individuals are employed and are in some way influenced by
their employer. Calling out that the initial set of committers will be
diverse and that a majority of those committers will be coming from places
other than the company donating the code is very good to know.  Perhaps the
sentence should be reworded to simply reflect that.
