"Not ready for graduation" is also too generic, for thw low diversity case
we can have of "lacking to attract new committers" , in that case maybe the
podling community can explain why to the IPMC also /w the help of Mentors
and hence we are able to evaluate whether the reasons are really valid not
to graduate or not

For examle Isis is a very active and healthy community but it took a while
till new blood comes into the community, which is changing recently but I
believe it happens to other podlings as well

But in general as u mentioned more investigations about categories of such
cases is idd required
