Thanks for following up and the compliment!!

Since Derby became an Apache incubator project we have added five new
committers, three in the last couple of weeks. All of the committers
when voted in were not from IBM (all of the six initial committers were
from IBM since it was an IBM contribution). Subsequently through the
Gluecode acquisition one of those committers (the first, Jeremy Boynes)
became employed by IBM.

Derby has reached the threshold of three independent committers. :-)

And all Derby committers are part of the derby-ppmc.

(derby-ppmc is working on getting the visible status file at the
incubator site up to date. The source STATUS file is up to date and
lists the committers and votes (thanks Jeremy), but there is some issue
in procedure in getting the source version reflected in the built site).
