Actually Derby had all IBM committers initially and an IBM mentor (Ken
Coar). We used the incubation process to successfully increase the
diversity of the community, even when IBM bought the company employing
our first (and then only) non-IBM committer. :-) I think everyone worked
hard to ensure that it was an ASF project and not an IBM one.
