Yes, the addition of committers is mainly the continuing arrival of Initial Committers.  The
number of newly-invited committers is growing, however, and these tend to be quite active
in their contributions.

The number submitting changes is limited to those active with the code base (or web site maintenance).
 So the list of names on commit messages is a select group.  I think the number of non-committer
patches can be counted on one hand.

How many of the 15 committers added in August submitted a patch (or got
a patch they had sent applied) during that timeframe?
