Regarding Raphael's comment:

You have 14 Committers, but only 4 for the proposed PMC?


The project began incubation with 10 committers.  If I recall correctly,
the proposed list of committers was drawn largely from contributors in the
git commit history in order to be inclusive and give them a chance to
continue contributing as committers.  Some of these people are not actively
involved at this time.  The list of committers has so far not been reduced
in size.  4 additional committers were later added, bringing the total to
14.  The 4 proposed PMC members were committers who volunteered when asked
who was willing to commit time to be on PMC.

Regarding Mike's comment:

How often has this process been used?


This process hasn't been used so far.  This page was created earlier this
year as we were going through the maturity evaluation.  This was largely
based on Fineract's wiki page
<https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/FINERACT/Becoming+a+Committer>
on the same subject, which seemed well written.  For the Apache DataFu page
we increased the time frame from 6 months to 1 year actually.  For myself
at least and probably others on the project the concept of "merit is
considered to never expire" is shared.  Do you think we should add a bullet
point to the page that if someone were removed from the committer list that
their past contributions would be considered if they expressed interest in
joining again?  If so I can propose that we update the page with this
language.
