Hello, Jochen,

> community equals committers?

No. The community is more than the team of committers. I'm sure you
understand. OTOH, the set of committers can be considered a
representation of the community.

I am quite certain, most Incubator members would accept a project to
have a "vibrant community", if the project could show, for example,

  * several writers of documentation (without committer privileges)
  * one or two creators of graphics (icons, or whatever, without
committer privileges)
  * one or more organizations providing hosting services, and the like

assuming them to be independent of each other. However, that would be
most unusual for an Apache project: In most cases, the committers are
the active project contributors.

Groovy might very well be a case to set a precedent here, as it
already has an impressive community. Don't bother thinking too much
about that point.

I'd bet that there are projects who left the Incubator without more
than 5 committers, or at least, without 5 really active committers.

Again, don't waste your time thinking about that. The Groovy community
is already quite impressive - and very unusually so for an Incubator
project.
