Hey Chris
As an officer you can be a champion if your project you chair (Samza) is
sponsoring the incoming podling with the intent of merging the two
communities - "Where the Champion is not a Member of the Foundation (i.e.
is an Officer only), the Champion shall be a member of the PMC of the
Sponsor.", did not think this was the case based on the proposal.

Makes sense about the committers and developing the community during
incubation, was just curious because there where some people with 20+
commits not in the initial committers list. Was not looking for a change,
more that there had been some thought behind this exclusion and how the
project intended to start developing that community
