Right. So then there would be just no one committing?
Please explain how that should work from your POV.

Unfortunately in terms of diversity not that much seems to have changed since.

You are pushing for it - and I don't get why.

Exactly. So let's give it the time it needs. What's so bad if it takes 3 years?
Just bringing this up every other month does not bring it any closer
to a successful graduation.

Quoting from the incubator guide at

"The project is considered to have a diverse community when it is not
highly dependent on any single contributor (there are at least 3
legally independent committers and there is no single company or
entity that is vital to the success of the project)"

That's just not the case yet.
