It's not exactly that. To graduate, a project must have "sufficient
diversity" so that it's not overly dependent on a single entity which
might lose interest and cause the project to stop.

That diversity is generally defined by having PMC members affiliated
with at least 3 different entities, which do not have to be companies
- people from two companies along with a few independents is fine.

What's most important is for all things to happen in the open, "if it
didn't happen on the dev list it didn't happen" so that anyone can
participate in decisions. My other thread about asynchronous
communications is related - it must be easy to collaborate with the
project even if one isn't working 100% on it.
