Derby seems to be doing well at a casual glance. Kewl :D

Remember the rule is not just there for legal reasons. (I won't bother to
comment on the legal stuff.)

Are you confident that Derby would continue to thrive if IBM stopped
dedicating resources to the project? Could the one non-IBM-affiliated
committer along with a hypothetical third person keep the project afloat and
running smoothly?

It doesn't sound like you think so.

Do all the Derby committers really think that's the case right now?

Remember that Geronimo was in incubation a lot longer than Derby has been so
far, for good reason. Remember that the Directory project was started in an
entirely different fashion and its community makeup is different in many
ways. Two apache members in their active committer list at least I think,
and several more apache regulars I believe. Don't compare apples and pears

Just 2 cents,
