I was under the impression that I could sponsor because I am an officer:

"A candidate project shall be sponsored by an Officer
<http://www.apache.org/foundation/index.html> or Member
<http://www.apache.org/foundation/members.html> of the Foundation"

The officer page lists me as a VP of Apache Samza. Perhaps I'm misreading?

Fixed.

committers, where any of the other existing contributors considered for the
proposal?

In terms of the high ratio of contributors to committers (109:6), the
reason is as follows. Most contributions are to the fringes of the system
and are in the form of 3rd party contributed hooks/operators (for 3rd party
integrations). For example, if you want to use Airflow to speak to
Cassandra, you may want to contribute a Cassandra Hook and CRUD operators.
Airflow allows for this extensibility and allows for our users to adapt
Airflow to their needs. However, the committer list is limited to folks who
will touch the internals of the system (e.g. scheduler, metadata
management, etc...). Overtime, we would like other contributors to get
familiar with the internals to the point where they can also become
maintainers, but they don't currently have the expertise.
