This, is a GREAT question! Thank you so much for raising it. While
preparing a proposal I've struggled with the same issue, because looking
at this: https://github.com/groovy/groovy-core/graphs/contributors makes
me wonder exactly the same thing.

In the end, we decided to go ahead with the proposal the way it is and position
the initial list of committers more as a PMC for the project.

That still doesn't answer your (or mine! ;-)) question of what's the best way
to make sure than anybody who feels like they have a stake in the project
and have contributed in the past get invited.

There are a few alternatives I could see, but I would really
appreciate Incubator's
collective wisdom on what would be the best way to proceed here given
that Groovy is a very mature project with a lot of contributors in the past.
Some of whom may or may not wish to keep contributing.

Thanks,
Roman.
