That's not my point, Marvin. The people who contributed less than 20 commits
(hmm, why not 4 or a 107?) are still contributors. And in my opinion, they at
least have to be invited to participate in the podling, if it is accepted by
IPMC. So, I will re-phrase: "was an invitation to participate in the project
extended to all contributors?".

Shall it be done formally or by providing "Interested Party" is an
implementation detail.
