 Title: Batik contributors
 
-#Batik contributors
+#Batik developers
 
+The Batik project had been mostly inactive since the release of version 1.7 in 2007. In 2013
the XMLGraphics
+PMC agreed to give committership rights to all PMC members to all projects. This was done
so that fixes
+needed by the FOP project could be committed to Batik by FOP committers that belong to the
PMC (similarly,
+Batik committers that belong to the PMC also have committership rights to FOP). Most of the
commits to Batik
+since 2013 have been done FOP committers.
