To give some concrete numbers; ActiveMQ currently has 20 committers; 15 have
been active so far during incubation. Though most of those 5 (apart from
Brian :) are Geronimo committers who tend to work on ActiveMQ as part of its
integration into Geronimo (e.g. David Jencks, Dain, Aaron etc). i.e. they
tend to work on integration issues with Geronimo as their primary

Note that we are apparently not allowed to use the incubating ActiveMQ
inside Geronimo until it leaves incubation

which is why some of the Geronimo folks haven't been active hacking on
ActiveMQ to fix it (as we don't yet know whats broke :). As soon as we start
integrating the Apache ActiveMQ codebase into Geronimo I'm sure those guys
will get active fast; though if this restriction is true, then they can only
really contribute after incubation is over which is very unfortunate.
